Lifetime’s “Project Runway” contends for four Emmys this year — Best Reality-Competition Series, Best Reality Host (Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn), Best Reality Cinematography and Best Reality Editing — while its spin-off show, “Project Runway: All-Stars,” also contends in that latter race. “Project Runway” is a perennial editing nominee, having contended for nine of the last 10 years. It won in 2009 but then ran into the buzz saw that is “Deadliest Catch,” which has taken the award for the last four years running. Can “Project Runway” stage an Emmy comeback with its two chances this year?

Has ‘Project Runway’ sewn up Emmy for Best Reality-Competition Program?

“Project Runway” won in 2009 on its fourth consecutive nomination, having previously lost to “The Amazing Race” (2006-2007) and “Top Chef” (2008). This year, it has submitted “Finale, Part 2” while “Project Runway: All-Stars” entered the episode “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”

Deadliest Catch” is undefeated in the Reality Editing category. Before 2011, it vied for several years in the separate Nonfiction Editing race, but never prevailed there. Now that it competes in the reality field, will its winning streak continue indefinitely?

Also in the hunt are two-time champ “The Amazing Race,” perennial nominee “Survivor” (which has never won) and first-time contender “Shark Tank.”
