"This is awesome, and I'm at a loss for words," True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga said while accepting the Emmy award for outstanding directing Monday night.
He was talking about his win, but he might have unintentionally been speaking for the thousands of viewers and fans of the show who never knew that Fukunaga was, well, so good-looking. Since the world was introduced to the man behind True Detective, the Internet has been positively awash with paeans to Fukunaga – including the jaw-dropping admission that he got his start working on the music video for Destiny Child's "Survivor," giving the night a much-needed dose of Beyoncé.
Here are five things you probably didn't know about everyone's new favorite half-Swedish, half-Japanese director with man-braids.

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.
It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?
Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.

Say, which shows are nominated at the Emmys this year?
You may be able to name a few, but we're betting you can't remember every single series nominated in the Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Comedy and Outstanding Miniseries categories this year.
So, we've built this infographic to test your TV knowledge. Can you get the names of all 18 shows just from one object or symbol? It's harder than it looks, so to help you out, we've listed each show's network underneath.
Happy guessing! (The answers are at the bottom, if you want to cheat.)

For many HBOGo users, Sunday night was a night of true disappointment.
Rabid fans of the elaborate, moody Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson-anchored drama True Detective swarmed to HBO's streaming service Sunday night in such droves, they literally broke the service.

If you thought it had something to do with Woody Harrelson's father-in-law – and this doesn't constitute a spoiler, because that was too off-base to ever be possible – you were wrong.
In fact, just about every theory that cropped up online speculating about the finale of HBO's terrific True Detective (and inspiring writers to mention the notorious ending of Lost) was wrong.
Now onto some real spoilers.
