HBO 2019 Emmy consideration billboards...

Game of Thrones final season Emmy FYC billboard
Last year Netflix stunned the entertainment industry by knocking HBO off the top spot when it came to Emmy nominations, with 112 to 108, but the premium cabler and streaming giant ended up tying with 23 award wins each.

Let's see how HBO fares this Emmy season with the help of its latest cohesive outdoor consideration campaign filling the sprawling skyline in recent weeks.

This year it's probably counting on ratings juggernaut Game of Thrones to deliver the majority of the nominations for its eighth and final season, although it'll be interesting to see if TV Academy voters will be as critical of the final episodes as viewers seemed.

The fantasy show still produced some of the most epic television to hit the small screen, so Daily Billboard thinks it'll garner accolades aplenty for its last Emmy Awards outing.

These Game of Thrones Emmy FYC billboards were snapped along Santa Monica Boulevard and L.A.'s 3rd Street from May 29 to June 6, 2019.

In general HBO's Emmy campaign ad creatives tend to recycle the key art for the shows season, or special or telefilm, adding reviews and the best quotes drive home why you should consider them. However this year Deadwood: The Movie is the exception to this rule, opting to use a cast image rather than the pistol ad creative for the release of the TV movie.

Thirteen years later can the movie revival of the acclaimed HBO Western series featuring many of its original stars, like Ian McShane, Paula Malcomson and Timothy Olyphant, garner more nominations to add to its 28 previous nods and eight Emmy wins.

These Emmy consideration billboards were spied high above San Vicente Boulevard and along Olympic Boulevard from June 21 to June 23, 2019.

HBO's drama about a dysfunctional media empire family headed by Brian Cox, Succession, is back in the skies this awards season, so it'll be interesting to see if people think it really is "the best show on TV".

These Emmy FYC billboards were spotted high above Wilshire Boulevard and San Vicente Boulevard from May 21 to May 24, 2019.

Last Emmy season HBO tempted big Hollywood names to star in Big Little Lies and reaped the benefits with 16 nominations and eight wins.
Sharp Objects Emmy consideration billboard
For this season it's hoping that its Sharp Objects adaptation headlined by Amy Adams will score big and it certainly has given the drama a lot of outdoor support.

Based on Gillian Flynn's debut novel of the same name, it also stars Golden Globe winner Patricia Clarkson and Eliza Scanlan, as Adams reporter returns to her hometown to cover a murder and face the psychological demons of her past.

My Dinner with Hervé HBO Emmy consideration billboard
If he doesn't receive a nomination for his role as 'Tyrion Lannister' in Game of Thrones, them maybe Peter Dinklage will enjoy better luck for his portrayal of Fantasy Island's Hervé Villechaize alongside Jamie Dornan in the biopic My Dinner with Hervé.

This FYC billboard for the telefilm about a struggling journalist sent to interview the actor was spied along Melrose Avenue on May 28, 2019.
Brexit 2019 Emmy consideration billboard
Another telemovie campaigning for Emmy consideration this month was Brexit, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as one of the architects behind Britain's referendum decision to leave the European Union.

It may be a "brilliant drama", but it seems almost perverse to campaign for a subject which is currently causing so much distress for Britain's population now reaping the consequences of the fatal decision. This Brexit Emmy ad creative was photographed along Melrose Avenue on May 24, 2019.
Real Time Bill Maher season 16 Emmy FYC billboard
With all the dark and divisive news from around the world and America of late, fortunately there's more than a few late-night comedians and talk show hosts to satirise all the latest political craziness and unsettling current affairs, like Bill Maher.

These vibrant Emmy FYC billboards for the "devastatingly funny" show were photographed along Santa Monica Boulevard and Olympic Boulevard from May 24 to June 6, 2019.
Veep 2019 Emmy consideration billboard
And finally for this collection of HBO Emmy consideration ads (although we're sure there's more out there around town we've missed or overlooked), here are two examples of billboards for the final season of Veep, captured along the Sunset Strip and La Brea Avenue from May 22 to May 24, 2019.

After skipping a year after her breast cancer diagnosis and her recovery, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the cast of the political comedy came back with a seventh season of Washington, D.C. scheming and shenanigans. And this season no one was safe when it came to 'Selina Meyer's' ego and ambition, not even Tony Hale's poor 'Gary'.

Let's see if Veep can reclaim its comedy crown this season, and how all the other HBO shows and telemovies will fare, when the coveted Emmy nominations are announced next month on July 16, 2019.
