2 Broke Girls 2016 Emmy nomination billboard
As you can see its been a busy time in the skies campaigning for the Emmys. A win can help a show with visibility and provide potential new viewers (especially in the binge-watching society we now live in), it can help show studio support for the talent and help further their careers (or at least with negotiations of salary) and at the end of the day, who doesn't want to be involved with an award-winning production (it may even help your show get renewed for another season).

For more Emmy nomination billboards from past and present you can also take a look at my Daily Billboard blog for more eye-catching examples.

I'm hoping things may calm down in the coming weeks in the outdoor world of television, but I'm sure it won't be long before another awards season is with us.

Happy Labor Day…
