In a Gold Derby exclusive, we have learned the category placements of the key Emmy Awards contenders for the Lifetime network. Last year this cable network scored major nominations with bids for limited series actor Adrien Brody ("Houdini") and reality-competition program "Project Runway" as well as its hosts Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.
Below, the list of Lifetime submissions across the drama, limited series and reality categories. Because Universal handles the campaign for "Bates Motel," it will be included on their list rather than this one. Two limited series — "Roots" and "War and Peace" — are also part of the History Channel and A&E campaigns. (Please note: Performers not included on this list may well be submitted by their personal reps.)
