Emmys grant producer credit to Amy Poehler, Mark Wahlberg
When the Emmy nominations were announced on July 14 the names of producers were not yet listed on the program categories. That's because it takes a few weeks for officials to confirm the producers' credits to make sure they qualify. Some stars such as Tina Fey, for example, work hard behind the scenes as writer-producers, but others do little while insisting upon producer credit as an ego trip.
Below is the list of some notable celebrities who picked up additional nods and could win a non-acting Emmy this year:
"The Office" -- Steve Carell, Ricky Gervais, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak
"Parks and Recreation" -- Amy Poehler
"30 Rock" -- Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey
"Boardwalk Empire" -- Martin Scorsese, Mark Wahlberg
"Dexter" -- Michael C. Hall
"The Good Wife" -- Ridley Scott, Tony Scott
In addition, the removal of the individual variety performance category two years ago means that hosts are now included with their program nominations. If the show wins, the host wins. That provides extra nods for Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Bill Maher, Conan O'Brien and Jon Stewart plus Ricky Gervais (Golden Globes), Sean Hayes (Tony Awards), James Franco (Oscars) and Anne Hathaway (Oscars).
