The twenty-something on-screen Big Apple BFFs, played Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, were hoping ads like this Emmy FYC billboard photographed above the Sunset Strip on May 29, 2019, would do the trick as their comedy show has never been nominated. Never.
If you've missed the other 2019 Emmy consideration billboards there's still time to check out Netflix's Emmy FYC billboards, HBO's Emmy FYC billboards, these Amazon, Hulu and CBS All Access FYC billboards, NBC's For Your Consideration campaign and even more besides before the nominations are announced on July 16, 2019.

What do you think this year? Who do you think is deserving of Emmy recognition this television season? There's such stiff competition and so much money being spent to help make all the shows stand out in L.A.'s cluttered skyline it could be anyone's game.

Or alternatively, Game of Thrones could win it all (aside from best comedy no doubt).
