For Your Consideration

For Your Consideration is a heading frequently used in advertisements in entertainment trade publications such as Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. They are specifically directed towards members of awards voting groups in the entertainment industry, like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that annually presents the Academy Awards celebrating the best in motion pictures, or the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences which presents the Primetime Emmy Awards for television.

I stumbled upon these ads for Heath Ledger as Best Supporting Actor, and The Dark Knight as the Best Movie. They are posted here 'coz they look amazing

Come to think of it, I would have voted for the Best Actor Award itself.

Prologue [PS]: Was too damn bored to type this out before.
Prologue [PS2]: A horde of other such ads can be found here.
Prologue [Ps3]: Heath Ledger RIP
