True Detective's Cary Fukunaga wins Emmy for Best Director

And the internet discovers its newest man-braided crush.

Well, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were presented on Monday night, and somewhere in between Sofia Vergara being summarily objectified and Breaking Bad winning, it was the usual mostly white affair.

But big congratulations to Cary Joji Fukunaga, who won the Emmy for Outstanding Director for a Drama Series for his work on HBO's True Detective. If you've seen the show, you have to admit it's one hell of an accomplishment, considering that Fukunaga directed all eight episodes of the acclaimed cable crime drama's first season. It's basically an eight-hour-long movie.

Mr. Fukunaga also instantly earned himself a legion of fans during the Emmy broadcast, with Twitter users collectively swooning and fanning themselves over his suddenly-realized panty-exploding hotness. With the help of those party-in-the-back man-braids, the red-hot filmmaker cleaned up quite nicely.

Here's the moment everyone realized Cary Joji Fukunaga is hot:

(He's also an excellent filmmaker.)
