2018 HBO Emmy nominee billboards...

Game of Thrones 22 Emmy nominations billboard
This year after a seventeen year-long run being in pole position with the most Emmy nominations, HBO was knocked off their top spot by streaming giant Netflix with four more nominations than the premium cable channel's 108 total. Let's face it though, that's still an amazing cumulative accomplishment.

Delivering 22 of those Emmy nominations this year was the seventh and penultimate season of the epic fantasy drama, Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martin's best-selling novels.

Following on from HBO's cohesive 2018 Emmy consideration billboards, the network is back in the skies to show some support for its Emmy nominees with the series season key art against a white backdrop filled with reviewers quotes, like this Game of Thrones example snapped at the intersection of Cahuenga Boulevard and Riverside Drive on August 14, 2018.

So far the fantasy series has scored 128 Emmy nominations and taken home 38 awards to date, how many more will the show win this September?

Another big budget HBO show delivering results this season was the TV reimagining of Westworld, back for a sophomore season of science fiction, dizzying flashback narratives and artificial intelligence 'Hosts' gone wild.

This season the series explored the world beyond its Western theme park for the uber-wealthy, visiting Shogun World and The Raj, helping the compelling drama garner 21 Emmy nominations, just one less than its debut season.
