2017 HBO Emmy nominations billboards...

Big Little Lies Brilliant Emmy nominations billboard
Once again premium cable network HBO topped the Emmy nominations this year with 111 nods, beating out close contender Netflix who nabbed 91 nominations.

This season HBO's high profile limited series, original dramas, telefilms and comedies scored big with accolades for newcomers and fan favourites alike.

Unlike previous award seasons where HBO has stuck with the same For Your Emmy Consideration ad campaigns throughout, this year to our delight they've introduced a second wave of cohesive ad creatives for their nominees, maybe to combat all the challengers nipping at their heels.

David E. Kelley's seven-part adaptation of Liane Moriarty's 2014 novel Big Little Lies scored big with sixteen nominations, with well deserved acting nods for stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Alexander Skargård, plus wonderfully acknowledging series director Jean-Marc Vallée.

This Emmy nominations billboard for the 'Brilliant' mini-series was spotted along Highland Avenue on August 5, 2017.
Westworld season 1 Emmy nominations billboard
Meanwhile HBO's ambitious Westworld TV adaptation scored the most Emmy nominations, tying with Saturday Night Live with 22 nods.

The sci-fi mystery based on Michael Crichton's 1973 film about a futuristic theme park populated by artificial intelligence 'hosts' entertaining the desires of its guests earned acting nominations for Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright.

The 'Mind-blowing' show also garnered nods for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Writing, Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Main Title Design and many more besides, and this Emmy nominee billboard was snapped above Westwood Boulevard on August 5, 2017.
Night Of Exquisite Emmy nominee billboard
The acclaimed limited series The Night Of was also a success story for HBO this year, receiving thirteen nominations. The eight-part crime series adapted from the British Criminal Justice 2008-2009 series obviously resonated with Television Academy voters in this time of racial tensions and profiling in the U.S.
