There are lots of benefits of a cable channel or TV network for garnering as many accolades as possible, and that's why HBO always does a fantastic job of highlighting its wide variety of drama, comedy and informational shows with its Emmy Consideration ad campaign.

In the short term there's all the marketing advantages, from raising the profile of a show to encouraging new viewers to give your series a chance if they haven't already. In addition it's a way for the channel to demonstrate they are supporting their talent and a win can mean lots more career and monetary opportunities for the actors and creatives involved.

Other benefits of awards wins can include increases for ad revenue or subscription rate fees and in the longer term, a popular show has more chance of achieving favourable syndication rights at a higher rate.

If you like this year's campaign, be sure to also compare these ad to HBO's 2013 Emmy Consideration billboards from last year which used a similar tactic.

The eye-catching crow from Game of Thrones fourth season billboards was paired with the word 'Brilliant' and spotted along Sunset Boulevard on May 25, although maybe 'Shocking' or 'Deadly' would have been better choices of adjective.

Meanwhile 'Hilarious' is the perfect choice of words for Veep's third season which has truly found its comedy groove and was photographed along Pico Boulevard, whilst Boardwalk Empire's 'Gripping' ad creative and Vice's 'Visceral' billboard were snapped along La Cienega Boulevard also on May 25, 2014.

Daily Billboard has yet to spy a creative for The Newsroom or True Blood (although the series is just kicking off its campaign for its seventh and final season), but we're sure there may be other HBO Emmy billboards yet to come.
