Amazon and Netflix 2016 Emmy nomination billboards...

The 68th Emmy Awards take place on September 18, 2016, so there's not long left for all these Emmy nomination billboards to work their magic on TV Academy members in the skies of Los Angeles.

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.
First up are these billboards for Amazon's hilarious and groundbreaking transgender dramedy, Transparent, nominated for its sophomore season of further exploring brave new world of 'Maura Pfefferman' and her dysfunctional L.A. family.
These 'Be Bold' ad creatives were snapped along Melrose Avenue and the Sunset Strip from August 11 to August 15, 2016, and they used a similar ad campaign for their debut Emmy season last year, so be sure check out these 2015 Transparent Emmy consideration billboards to compare them.
Meanwhile another buzz-worthy Amazon series, The Man in the High Castle, adopted Transparent's 'Be Brave' tagline from last year to embody the show set in alternative world where Nazis and the Axis powers won World War II and America was divided between them.
These Emmy nomination billboards for the freshman series based on Philip K. Dick's 1962 novel and starring Alexa Davalos, Rufus Sewell, Rupert Evans and Luke Kleintank, were spied along Venice Boulevard, Santa Monica Boulevard and Highland Avenue from August 11 to August 23, 2016.
Considering Amazon Studios only launched in late 2010, they're not doing too badly when it comes to critical acclaim for their original scripted series.

One Emmy ad campaign which has delighted Daily Billboard this season has been this one for Netflix's joyful Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's second season.

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.

In addition to Netflix's FYC ads, the comedy's production company Universal Television also supported the show with this billboard in the same colour scheme.

Another Netflix show racking up the Emmy nominations this year was House of Cards and its fourth diabolical season of political scheming.

'Frank and Claire Underwood' certainly delivered the drama and twists in the White House and their personal lives this season.

Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright may have each nabbed a Golden Globe for their performances in the past, but even though they've both been nominated in the best acting categories since 2013, an Emmy has so far eluded either of them. Will 2016 be their lucky year?

Let's see if these House of Cards Emmy nomination billboards, which were snapped along the Sunset Strip, Olympic Boulevard and Melrose Avenue from August 11 to August 22, 2016, can help secure enough votes.
Master of None 2016 Emmy nomination billboard
Master of None is another show produced by Universal Television and streamed on Netflix, and also enjoys some Emmy nominations for its rookie season.

Aziz Ansari plays a fictionalized version of himself in this comedy as a 'jack of all trades, master of none', which explores the 30-year-old's life in New York City and is based on some of his real-life experiences and a child of Indian immigrants.

These Emmy nomination ad creatives utilising the show's debut season key art were spied high above San Vicente Boulevard, along the Sunset Strip, Ventura Boulevard and La Brea Avenue from August 11 to August 18, 2016.

In addition to fresh new comedies and compelling dramas, Netflix has also become a real destination for engaging and enlightening documentary films and series.

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.

And finally, Liz Garbus' Nina Simone documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, was already nominated for an Oscar earlier this year, so can the biographical film about the iconic and flawed soul singer score big at the Emmys?

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.
