How Many Emmy Awards Giada De Laurentiis Has Really Won

For anyone in the entertainment industry, an Emmy award is a huge career milestone. According to the Emmys, the award is a recognition from winners' peers that their work was remarkable. Thousands of entries pour in each year, so actually earning an official nomination and winning an award is quite an achievement in a television career.

Giada De Laurentiis is no stranger to feeling that sense of accomplishment that comes with winning an Emmy. In fact, she's among some select company due to her success. According to IMDb, De Laurentiis is in the elite company of television stars like Susan Flannery in terms of bringing home that Emmy hardware. Those in the class of De Laurentiis and Flannery have grown accustomed to seeing their names among Emmy nominee rolls. In fact, for De Laurentiis, not being among the nominees in recent years might actually be more remarkable than receiving a nomination.

Giada De Laurentiis' wins are thrice as nice

According to Insider, Giada De Laurentiis has won three Emmy awards. The first came in 2008 in the Outstanding Lifestyle Host category for her work on her first show, "Everyday Italian." De Laurentiis would then take home two more Emmys in 2020: One was for Outstanding Culinary Host and the other was for Outstanding Culinary Series, pertaining to another show, "Giada Entertains."

However, De Laurentiis has strung together quite a list of Emmy nominations. IMDb shows that each year from 2016-2021, she was nominated at least once. In total, the chef has 10 Emmy nominations spread across 10 separate years. Food Network shares how the culinary arts and entertainment industry are both in her blood and training — the culinary star is the granddaughter of film producer Dino De Laurentiis and got her culinary training at Le Cordon Blue in Paris.

Even De Laurentiis herself might not have imagined that her family lineage and culinary training would lead to winning three Emmy awards and counting. Emmy nominators and voters have recognized her talent many times throughout the years of her career, though.
