Two years ago, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn won Best Reality Hosts at the Emmys for Lifetime’s “Project Runway,” but the show hasn’t been able to break through in the competitive Best Reality-Competition Program category. Might that all change this year?

After all, “Project Runway” is airing new episodes this month, including during Emmy voting (Aug. 17 to Aug. 28). So, even though voters are judging last season of the show, the current cycle means it’ll be fresh in voters’ minds as they begin marking their ballots this week.

Producers have decided to submit episode eight of Season 13, “The Rainway,” in which the remaining contestants have to design unique looks that can stand up to harsh elements like rain and snow. Caitlin Fitzgerald (“Masters of Sex”) is the week’s guest judge.

The other nominees for Best Reality-Competition Series are 10-time champion “The Amazing Race,” 2013 winner “The Voice,” 2010 victor “Top Chef” and a pair of dancing shows: “Dancing With the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”
