Netflix 2017 Winter Awards For your consideration billboards...

Meyerowitz Stories New Selected movie billboard
Can you believe it was only back in February 2013 when Netflix started streaming its own original content with House of Cards (in the news lately for all the wrong reasons thanks to the sexual assault claims against Kevin Spacey), now almost five years later it's hard to keep up with all the streaming platform's original television, movie and documentary offerings.

Netflix became the first high-profile streaming service to land an Oscar nod for 2013's The Square documentary and earlier this year won its first Academy Award for the documentary short, The White Helmets, but it has yet to garner any feature film Oscar nominations.
Meyerowitz Stories billboard
In the past it campaigned heavily for Beasts of No Nation starring Idris Elba, but maybe this year Noah Baumbach's dysfunctional family drama starring Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman (currently dealing with his own sexual harassment claims) and Emma Thompson, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), will help Netflix garner some nominations.

The launch billboards for the movie featured above were photographed along the Sunset Strip and Beverly Boulevard from October 4 to October 22, 2017.

Meanwhile the awards campaigning billboards for the Netflix original film were spotted from November 17 to December 1, 2017 along Santa Monica Boulevard, Bundy Drive and Robertson Boulevard.

It's certainly awards season in the city skyline and lots of other accolades to be gained too, like Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Critics' Choice Awards to name but a few.

If The Meyerowitz Stories doesn't excite voters, then maybe director Dee Rees new Netflix picture Mudbound will be the hit of the winter awards season.

The feature film stars Mary J. Blige, Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Jonathan Banks, Rob Morgan and Jason Clarke and follows the story of two men who return home after fighting in World War II to work on a farm in rural Mississippi, where they have to readjust to life and racism after the war.

Another Netflix film hoping for some recognition this season is First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers.

Directed by Angelina Jolie, this potential nominee for foreign language film recounts the horror endured by Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung as a child under the rule of the deadly Khmer Rouge in the 1970s.

The launch billboard was snapped above Westwood Boulevard on September 24, whilst the Netflix FYC billboard for the biographical film was spotted along Melrose Avenue on November 18, 2017.
Strong Island Netflix FYC billboard
Netflix has become a real platform for documentary makers and last year Ava DuVernay's 13th documentary film was nominated for an Oscar, so can Yance Ford score any nods this season for Strong Island, which examines the violent death of his brother, William, and the judicial system that allowed his killer to walk free.

The documentary launch billboard was snapped above Santa Monica Boulevard in West L.A. on September 24, whilst the FYC version was spied above 3rd Street on December 1, 2017.
Icarus documentary consideration billboard
Meanwhile with the recent news of Russia being banned from the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea, the documentary from first-time filmmaker Bryan Fogel, Icarus, about the Russian doping scandal at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics is even more topical.

Will this FYC billboard snapped above the intersection of Vine Street and Melrose Avenue on November 18, 2017, help Icarus run away with a few awards this season?
Chasing Coral consideration billboard
And finally for this installment of Netflix awards consideration ads, this Chasing Coral documentary FYC billboard was spotted at Melrose and La Brea Avenues on November 18, 2017.

Anyone who cares about the world's environment and the vanishing coral reefs will find this documentary by director Jeff Orlowski compelling, but will the various academy voters think the same?

Daily Billboard is sure that these are not the only Netflix awards campaign billboards we'll see around L.A. this winter, but it's a good start.

Blige for Best Supporting Actress and for Best Original Song, 'Mighty River', by Raphael Saadiq and Mary J. Blige.
