Netflix 2015 Emmy Nomination billboards for your consideration...

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Peeno Noir 2015 Emmy billboard Hollywood
Before we get in too deep with an exploration of all the new TV shows coming to our screens this Fall season, there's still plenty of time for networks and studios to campaign in the skies of L.A. and try to win enough Emmy votes to take home some of the prestigious industry award accolades.

Netflix didn't really campaign during the 2015 Emmy consideration period, only the freshman comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt seemed to receive any noticeable support, but now that the nominations have been announced they're supporting their stars and shows with a vengeance.

They've also taken a leaf out of HBO's Emmy consideration billboards by giving their outdoor ad campaign a cohesive brand design for all the original shows and films in their stable.

Each offering has its own individual bold colour scheme and prominent quotes from the show itself, plus the nominated category or actor is clearly presented. There's a lot to cram in, but it works.

Take for example the support for rookie comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which really stands out with these hot pink billboards. There's even additional outdoor ad support from the production studio, Universal Television, for the comedy about a woman who escaped captivity and was given a new lease on life, which has garnered seven Emmy nominations.

These Kimmy billboards were snapped from August 8 to August 15, 2015, along La Cienega Boulevard, Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard, Wilshire Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard. From the looks of all these ads, someone really wants to win an Emmy.

Next up is another new series on Netflix, the family drama Bloodline, with Kyle Chandler and Ben Mendelsohn both receiving nominations, for Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actor respectively, for their portrayal of troubled siblings with their fair share of dark secrets.

This Emmy nominated Derek Special billboard was snapped along the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood on August 11.

If you're a fan of the show and actor, you should also check out the billboard for the Derek Special which parodied the Fifty Shades of Grey advertising campaign.
Lily Tomlin Grace and Frankie Emmy 2015 billboard
And last, but by no means least, here are billboards for Grace and Frankie, Netflix comedy about two women in their seventies brought closer together when their husbands decide to leave them to get married to each other.

The series reunited 9 to 5's Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin on the small screen after all these years, but it was Tomlin and her portrayal of the peyote-taking artist 'Frankie' that received an Emmy nomination.

These billboards wonderfully illustrating different sides of her character's personality, calm and frantic, were spied on August 12 and August 16 along Westwood Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard and Pico boulevard.

Daily Billboard is sure we'll spy more ads in this outdoor campaign before the winners are announced, but until then be sure to also check out last year's Netflix Emmy nomination billboards.

Plus come back in the days to come to see even more Emmy nomination billboards in the skies of Los Angeles vying for TV Academy member attention and votes.
