Today it's time to shine a spotlight on all the outdoor ads we've spied for streaming services Amazon and Netflix, because their new original series and thought-provoking programming has really shaken up the TV landscape in the last few years and given life to shows that probably wouldn't have survived on traditional network and cable channels.
2015 Transparent Emmy consideration billboards to compare them.
These FYC billboards are a continuation of Netflix's season two billboards for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which featured Kimmy's naive interpretations of American slang abbreviations like DTF ("Dang that's funny"), MILF ("My interesting lady friend") and SMD ("Strawberry Milkshake Day"), to name a few hilarious examples.
After being passed over for the debut season, Ellie Kemper secured a Primetime Emmy nomination for her titular performance and Tituss Burgess once again was deservedly nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
These brilliant, tongue-in-cheek Emmy nomination billboards were photographed around the streets and skies of L.A., including along Robertson Boulevard, Vine Street, Olympic Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard, Bundy Drive and Sunset Boulevard from August 9 to August 23, 2016.
Not only did Making a Murderer garner nominations for Outstanding Documentary Series, but its investigation filmed over ten years into Steven Avery also helped the attorneys overturn his nephew, Brendan Dassey's, conviction in the crime.
This Emmy nomination billboard for the real-life crime docu-series from Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi was spotted along Pico Boulevard on August 25, 2016.
This ad creative for the Netflix music documentary was spied along Pico Boulevard on August 22, 2016.
It won't be long until all these wonderful Emmy billboards disappear from the skies of L.A. once more, so let's see if they help do the trick for these shows and features this award season.
