Late Night 2019 Emmy consideration billboards...

Jimmy Kimmel Live Accidental Consideration 2019 Emmy billboard
One Emmy Award category that's always highly contested is that for best Variety Talk Series, so be sure to enjoy all these individual approaches from late-night hosts to help stand out in the city skyline for consideration.

They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery and if they gave an award for that then Jimmy Kimmel would certainly win for spoofing reigning talk show champ, John Oliver. Obviously he didn't think his own monologues or guest interviewing techniques were deserving enough on their own merits.

This funny Emmy consideration billboard for Jimmy Kimmel Live hilariously mirrors the season six key art for Last Week Tonight and was photographed along West Hollywood's infamous Sunset Strip on June 12, 2019, and there's nothing accidental about the choice of this approach.

This late-night variety awards category almost seems like a battle of men in suits, but at least some of the hosts have fun with their Emmy advertising, like Stephen Colbert.

Samantha Bee Emmy FYC Get Vaccinated billboard
As the only female late-night host on television, she feels the sting of the current administration's policies on healthcare, reproductive rights, separating families, caging children and queer women's equality even more, but provides her own rallying cries of rebuttal with biting sharp satire.

She even survived having to publicly apologise to Ivanka Trump, although if more people are offended by her comments than by the immigrant children dying at the border at the moment, then you need to reevaluate your sense of humanity.
Not White House Correspondents Dinner Samatha Bee FYC billboard
In addition to her weekly Full Frontal show she also brought us the second Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner and supplied the comedy missing from that neutered event.

These 'Other things to consider' Emmy billboards were snapped along Santa Monica Boulevard and Pico Boulevard from May 24 to June 17.

Killing Eve season 2 Emmy consideration billboard
Did the second season excite viewers and voters alike enough to reward them with Emmy nominations this season?
