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).

Poll: Will Mark Wahlberg pull off another Oscar surprise?


Oscar pundits have a habit of underestimating Mark Wahlberg. Just four years ago, nobody took him seriously as a derby contender when "The Departed" jockeyed for best picture. All eyes were on his costars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jack Nicholson, but both got skunked. Wahlberg was the only star of Oscar's best picture champ to get an acting nomination. He lost that race, but was nonetheless voted best supporting actor of 2006 by the National Society of Film Critics.

Now it looksas if Oscar gurus are dismissing him again. Only one of the 10 pundits at The Envelope's Buzzmeter and five of the 23 pundits polled by Gold Derby believe Wahlberg will be nominated for lead actor Tuesday when Academy Award nominations are unveiled. What do you think? He was nominated at the Golden Globes, where he lost to Colin Firth ("The King's Speech"). He took home a nice consolation prize, however. He's a producer of "Boardwalk Empire," which won for Best TV drama series. He was overlooked by the Screen Actors Guild in the lead actor bout for "The Fighter," but he's nominated along with his costars for SAG's ensemble award, which they COULD win.
