There's no denying that Amy Schumer's jump from TV sketch show comedy to big screen laughs in Trainwreck and Taraji P. Henson's 'Cookie Lyon' in Fox's smash hit series Empire weren't winners this year, but what were your favourite TV shows, films and performers this past twelve months?
Pitch Perfect 2's director Elizabeth Banks, Master of None's Aziz Ansari, singer Nicki Minaj and the cast of the Straight Outta Compton movie.
These VH1 Big in 2015 billboards were spied in multiple locations along Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard from November 27 to December 5, 2015.
Trainwreck movie billboards, Inside Amy Schumer billboards and her giant Live at the Apollo HBO standup special billboard.
Plus fans of Taraji P. Henson should check out these Empire TV billboards and she her stripped naked in this anti-fur PETA billboard.
Let's hope 2016 will be just as jam-packed with standout performances and rising stars, and get ready to enjoy the New Year's awards season when Hollywood's glitterati hit the red carpets for the SAG Awards, Golden Globes, Oscars, Grammys and more.
