Here’s an exclusive sneak peek at Lifetime’s 2014 Emmy campaign

In a Gold Derby exclusive, cable network Lifetime has provided their Emmy Awards campaign for 2014 with category placements.

As in recent years, Lifetime movies have been one of the top TV destinations for award-winning actors and actresses. This year alone, you’ll find Oscar winners Ellen Burstyn (“Flowers in the Attic“), Whoopi Goldberg (“A Day Late and a Dollar Short“), Holly Hunter and William Hurt (“Bonnie and Clyde“), and Martin Landau (“Anna Nicole“). Also in the mix are previous Emmy champs Kathy Baker (“Return to Zero“), S. Epatha Merkerson (“Gabby Douglas Story“), and Cicely Tyson (“The Trip to Bountiful“).

Cicely Tyson among Tony winners for ‘The Trip to Bountiful

The network has two new shows in contention this time around. “Devious Maids” is a comedy about five Latina maids working in Beverly Hills from “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry. “Witches of East End” stars Emmy champ Julia Ormond (“Temple Grandin”) as a mother who is unknowingly part of her family’s next generation of witches.

Several of those programs will be available on a “For Your Consideration” screener set being sent out in May. Also included will be two reality series: “Project Runway” (with reigning Emmy-winning hosts Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum) and “Dance Moms.”

Below, the complete list of Lifetimes’s planned submissions. Remember that some of these still might change before the Emmy ballots are released in June. Also, keep in mind that people not on this list could be submitted by their personal reps.
