Best-Dressed Man of the Week: Cary Fukunaga

The director of 'True Detective' steals the show at the Emmys

We can be pretty tough critics sometimes, but we'll admit that at the 66th Emmy Awards, everybody looked pretty good. However, we saved the best for last.

While we were busy gushing over Seth Meyers's perfect tuxedo(s), out of nowhere came Cary Joji Fukunaga, the prodigious director of HBO's cryptic series True Detective. As he went on stage to receive the Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, Fukunaga set the Internet into a frenzy, with every straight female and sexually-confused boy suddenly calling him their "dream boyfriend," and even the "hottest straight guy at the Emmys" (that's not very nice for Jon Hamm, Idris Elba, or Matthew McConaughey).

Fukunaga, an Oakland native of Japanese and Swedish decent, sported a sharp black tux, nerdy glasses, and delicious man-braids (we kinda like him clean-cut, too), which was enough to make our pretty little hearts skip a beat. Did you know that he got his break directing Destiny's Child "Survivor" video, back in 2001? Now, that just makes us love him even more.
