Some have called it a symbolic demand evoking timely issues of women speaking up for what they want. Others have said it’s the most obvious, large-scale gold digging operation to hit Hollywood. Still more have called it “better than ‘Star Wars.'” OK, maybe Rian Johnson is the only one on record for that last one, but one thing is clear: “An Emmy For Megan” is dominating the 2018 Emmy race.
Megan Amram’s self-financed web series landed two Emmy nominations in July, and she’s not stopping there. As the self-proclaimed auteur recently stated on Twitter, “It’s not called ‘Two Nominations For Megan,’ it’s called ‘An Emmy For Megan.’ Because what matters is that trophy.”
To that end, the “Good Place” and “Parks and Recreation” writer recently held a pop-up Emmy event to support her program. She unveiled two new billboards, signed autographs for (presumed) Emmy voters, handed out flyers, and distributed 200 lawn signs. Take a look at IndieWire’s photo gallery for more.
Amram’s Phase Two billboard went up Monday, August 6 on the corner of Third Street and Alta Vista Blvd in Los Angeles.
The top states “For Your Consideration” in a cursive font, and lists the series’ two nominated categories beneath. At the bottom, a quote from “Future Emmy winner” Megan Amram reads, “The other billboard is on the corner of Gower St. and Santa Monica blvd.”

A wide shot of the billboard’s location. Amram was signing autographs and handing out lawn signs just behind that silver SUV, under the pine trees.
Amram has a message for the fans lined up to support her campaign.
“There’s no contingency plan for if the fire station tells us to get off their property.”
Vice News cameras picked up the entire event.
Fans line up along Alta Vista Blvd, waiting for their chance to grab a lawn sign and say hello to the double nominee.
Amram wisely positioned herself in the shade, knowing her fans would wait in any sort of heat to support such a worthy cause.
Carnegie wore a t-shirt that read “Emmy nominee.” He made it himself, but will replace it with the official version he expects from the TV Academy “soon.”
“I made lawn signs to help me win an Emmy.”
