Showtime, FX, Fox, Starz, AMC and BBC America 2019 Emmy consideration billboards...

Kidding season 1 Emmy consideration billboard
This week you've been enjoying the smattering of Emmy consideration billboards battling it out for attention in the crowded skies of L.A., and today it's the turn of cable and broadcast channels Showtime, FX, Fox, Starz, AMC and BBC America to make their pitches for nominations.
Kidding 2019 Emmy FYC billboard
First up is Showtime's Jim Carrey-fronted comedy-drama series, Kidding, in which the Hollywood star plays an iconic children's personality, 'Mr. Pickles', whose life takes a downward spiral after a tragic family event.

This puppet-tastic Emmy consideration billboard was spied above Vine Street on May 28, 2019.
Black Monday season 1 Emmy FYC billboard
Next up is another series from Showtime, the new late-1980s Wall Street comedy, Black Monday staring Regina Hall, Don Cheadle and Andrew Rannells, as employees at a second-tier firm facing the challenges of the 1987 international stock market crash.

These Emmy FYC billboards were snapped along Olympic Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard from May 24 to May 28, 2019.
Who Is America season 1 Emmy billboard
Sacha Baron Cohen was back on television this year and making things deliciously uncomfortable for corrupt politicians and right-wing nutjobs as he interviewed them disguised as a plethora of equally outrageous characters in Who Is America?

This debut season Emmy consideration billboard for the variety sketch show category was snapped above La Brea Avenue on May 22, 2019.
Patricia Arquette Escape at Dannemora Emmy FYC billboard
Quite possibly the jewel in Showtime's television offering this year may be its mini-series directed by Ben Stiller, Escape at Dannemora.

Based on the 2015 real-life jailbreak in Upstate New York, Patricia Arquette has already taken home the Golden Globe for Best Actress for her role as prison employee 'Tilly Mitchell' who'd become romantically entangled with two inmates played by Paul Dano and Benicio del Toro.

The actress looks almost unrecognisable for this gripping performance and also for another role, in Hulu's true crime story The Act, which she is also in serious contention for receiving an Emmy nomination, so will it be her year?

As you can see Showtime has opted for a cohesive livery for their Emmy FYC billboards and these ones for Escape at Dannemora were snapped along La Brea Avenue, Sunset Boulevard and Olympic Boulevard from May 22 to May 24, 2019.

If you like this approach, make sure you also check out Showtime's 2018 Emmy FYC billboards filling last May and June's skies.
Pose season 1 Emmy consideration billboard
As this year's Pride Month draws to a close, it's wonderful to shine a spotlight on the trailblazing transgender and queer 1980s period drama, Pose.

The debut season of Ryan Murphy's FX drama introduced viewers to the world of New York City's ball room and 'house' culture, based on the iconic 1990 Paris Is Burning documentary.

Sporting a stellar transgender and gay cast, the largest ever assembled for a television show, let's see if this season one Emmy consideration billboard captured along Pico Boulevard on May 24, 2019, can help Pose snatch all the trophies this season.
Masked Singer Consider Crazy Emmy 2019 billboard
In the world of music talent competition shows this year, Fox really mixed things up with its bonkers costumed celebrity series, The Masked Singer.

This 'Consider Crazy' Emmy FYC billboard giving passersby a look at some of the costumed performers was snapped along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip on May 24, 2019.
Power season 5 Emmy FYC billboard
Meanwhile over on Starz, Power, the drugs, crime and corruption drama starring Omari Hardwick, Jospeh Sikora and 50 Cent was back for a fifth and penultimate season of backstabbing, lies and deception.
Power 2019 Emmy consideration billboard
This Emmy consideration billboard for Power season five was captured along the Sunset Strip above the Saddle Ranch Chop House on May 29, 2019. Maybe they can broker a plea deal to get some nominations this year?
Vida 2019 Emmy consideration billboard
Starz was also campaigning this month for the sophomore season of its groundbreaking queer Latinx drama, Vida, starring Mishel Prada and Melissa Barrera as the Mexican-American 'Hernandez' sisters from the Eastside of L.A.
Vida season 2 Emmy FYC billboard
This eye-catching 'The future is chingona' Emmy FYC billboard was snapped along Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard on June 4, 2019.
Better Call Saul season 4 Emmy FYC billboard
Breaking Bad's critical-darling prequel spin-off, Better Call Saul, was also hoping for Emmy attention this year for its fourth season.

Can the three-time Emmy nominee, Bob Odenkirk, make it four consecutive nominations for the backstory of conman turned sleazy lawyer 'Jimmy McGill' aka 'Saul Goodman'.

This two-faced Emmy consideration billboard was photographed along West Hollywood's Sunset Strip on June 12, 2019.
Better Call Saul 2019 Emmy FYC billboard
And finally for this collection, we have this Emmy consideration billboard for the sophomore season of cat-and-mouse spy thriller, Killing Eve, captured along La Brea Avenue on June 13, 2019.

Sandra Oh took home the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress for the debut season as British Intelligence agent 'Eve Polastri', whilst Phoebe Waller-Bridge's series also introduced us to the fabulously complex threat of Jodie Comer's ruthless assassin 'Villanelle'.
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?

In addition to asking TV Academy members to consider the shows, this out-of-home Emmy campaigning is also an opportunity for regular viewers to reconsider a series they may have missed and play catch up by binge-watching in these days of on-demand and streaming options.

Let's see if these FYC ads help any of these shows when this year's Emmy nominations are announced on Tuesday July 16, 2019.
