Emmy nominee billboards campaigning around L.A. in August 2020...

The whole world has been turned upside-down this year and the entertainment industry has certainly been impacted, trying to come up with creative solutions to working remotely during this health crisis and keep as many people as possible working. Even though the Emmy Award season was initially affected, the traditional outdoor campaigning for the television industry awards has bounced back with the usual barrage of Emmy consideration and nominee billboards flooding the streets and skies of Tinseltown. Here's a snapshot of some of the hopeful nominees standing out in vinyl around Los Angeles this August 2020.

Awards consideration billboards
