2019 HBO Emmy nominee billboards...

Giant Game of Thrones 32 Emmy nominations billboard
The Iron Throne may have been destroyed during the final season of Game of Thrones, but HBO certainly returned to reign supreme in the top spot this year with 137 Emmy nominations, beating closest competitor Netflix by twenty nominations.

Last year the streaming giant surprised the entertainment industry by surpassing the premium cable network in nominations after an eighteen year streak of domination and tying for award wins with twenty-three statuettes apiece.

How will HBO fare this year when it comes to trophies on shelves? Well it looks like the eighth season of its George R. R. Martin fantasy series will help deliver a few wins with a staggering thirty-two nominations, even though fan reaction to the show's epic ending was mixed.

These different size Game of Thrones Emmy nominee billboards were photographed along the Sunset Strip and Vine Street from August 12 to August 14, 2019.
Chernobyl 19 Emmy nominations billboard
HBO always knows how to deliver a cohesive outdoor Emmy campaign, usually modifying season key art and updating with favorable reviews, and it seems to work for them (although you have to wonder what would happen if they took a totally fresh approach).
Chernobyl 2019 Emmy nominee billboard
This Emmy season HBO's limited series Chernobyl, about the 1986 Soviet Ukraine nuclear reactor disaster, scored big with nineteen nominations.
Chernobyl HBO FYC Emmy nominee billboard
These HBO FYC Emmy nominee billboards for the drama were snapped along La Cienega Boulevard, La Brea Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard from August 14 to August 16, 2019.
Barry 2019 Emmy nominee billboard
The sophomore season of HBO's dark comedy Barry was also a winner when it came to nominations this year, with a whopping seventeen nods for the series starring Bill Hader.
Barry 17 Emmy nominations billboard
These Emmy nominee billboards for the show about a professional hitman-turned-amateur actor were spied along Olympic Boulevard and Cahuenga Boulevard from August 8 to August 17, 2019.
Veep 9 Emmy nominations billboard
In addition to Game of Thrones, HBO also saw the seventh and final season of its political satire Veep air this past year.

Earning nine nominations, can Julia Louis-Dreyfus reclaim her Emmy crown from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel after beating breast cancer and returning as the egotistical 'Selina Meyer' who will do anything to pursue her political ambitions?

These Emmy nominee billboards for Veep were spotted along Sunset Boulevard and Melrose Avenue from August 8 to August 14, 2019.
Speaking of political satire and tying with nine Emmy nominations, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver continued to be a success story for HBO this season.
Can the reigning Variety Talk Series champ retain his title this year and will these Emmy nominee billboards snapped above Hollywood Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard from August 14 to August 16, 2019, help him and his show win?
Another drama series that delivered for HBO this year was the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's debut novel, Sharp Objects, starring Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson.
These billboards highlighting the mini-series eight nominations were captured along Sunset Boulevard on August 13, 2019, and along Highland Avenue the next day.
Deadwood The Movie 8 Emmy nominations billboard
In addition to new shows, HBO also revived an old favourite this year with Deadwood: The Movie back on the small screen.

More than ten years after it finished, the Western drama returned for a follow-up TV movie nabbing eight nominations, although none for its returning cast, but nods for sound, editing, cinematography, hairstyling, makeup and special visual effects.

This Emmy nominee HBO FYC billboard for the telemovie was spotted above Fairfax Avenue on August 17, 2019.
Another HBO offering nominated for Outstanding Television Movie was My Dinner with Hervé, starring Peter Dinklage as Fantasy Island actor Hervé Villechaize.

Brexit TV Movie Emmy nominee billboard
From nuclear meltdowns in Chernobyl to political and economic ones in HBO's Brexit telefilm, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. The movie chronicling the Leave and Remain arguments for the U.K.'s future within the European Union was also an Emmy nomination recipient this season.

Succession 5 Emmy nominations billboard
And finally for this collection of outdoor ads (although it may not be the exhaustive list), HBO's family media empire drama Succession also garnered five Emmy nods for its debut season, with these nominee billboards snapped along La Brea Avenue and Pico Boulevard on August 16, 2019.

Be sure to also compare this out-of-home campaign to the previous cohesive Emmy nominee billboards for HBO from recent years.

With Game of Thrones ending this Emmy qualifying season, let's see if HBO's hit shows like second season of Big Little Lies, the third season of Westworld, the debut season of Euphoria and new offerings like Watchmen and His Dark Materials can keep the premium cable channel dominating the TV landscape when it comes to Emmy nominations in 2020.
