2014 Emmys and Netflix Emmy Consideration billboards around L.A...

2014 Emmys Seth Meyers billboard
The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are fast approaching and it looks like this year's host, Seth Meyers, plans on stealing the show (or at the very least a few Emmys) this season.

Now that the nominations have been announced it looks like HBO's For Your Consideration outdoor ad campaign was a real success as the premium cable channel garnered the most Emmy nominations with 99 in total.

Meanwhile relative newcomer on the original TV programming scene (and binge-watching maestro), Netflix, also did equally well, with 31 Emmy nominations for its shows including Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and Derek.

Even though AMC spent big this season on outdoor advertising to garner eight nominations for the first half of the final season of Mad Men with their vintage-style ad campaign, Netflix (with more nominations than Fox or Comedy Central) seems to be the only content provider to follow up their initial 2014 Emmy Consideration billboards with a second wave post-nomination announcement.

These second wave Emmy billboards for Orange is the New Black's sophomore season were spotted along the Sunset Strip, Westwood Boulevard and Beverly Boulevard between July 31 and August 4, 2014.

Not only is the female prison-based show up for Outstanding Comedy Series, but Taylor Schilling is a contender for Outstanding Lead Actress and Kate Mulgrew is in the running for Supporting Actress.

The critically-acclaimed, sensational second season of House of Cards managed to secure nominations for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor for Kevin Spacey and Lead Actress for Robin Wright (will she be able to add an Emmy to her Golden Globe win earlier this year).

Not only is Seth Meyers celebrating hosting this prestigious industry event this month, but it's also been six months since he took over the 'Late Night' desk from Jimmy Fallon, when he left to take over The Tonight Show.

His Late Night with Seth Meyers series launch billboard was spied earlier this year along Sunset Boulevard on February 19, whilst his glitzy Emmys billboard was spotted further west along Sunset Boulevard on August 4, 2014.
Ricky Gervais Derek Emmy billboard 2014
Finally, Netflix's other contender this month is Ricky Gervais for his starring role in his British comedy, Derek, now in its second season. This billboard was spied along Beverly Boulevard on July 30, 2014 and the comedian is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, but he's up against some really stiff competition in the form of Jim Parsons, William H. Macy, Louis C.K., Matt LeBlanc and Don Cheadle.

And this year, the Emmy goes to.
