What's Trending: A Toddler's Ice Bucket Challenge, the Ultimate Troll, and More!

26 August 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

This 2-year-old just dominated the Ice Bucket Challenge. Though it's not quite as cute, Leonardo DiCaprio's Ice Bucket Challenge is proof that the actor knows how to rock some serious scruff (and a man bun!). Who was the hottest guy at the Emmys? Well, if you ask almost every straight woman who was following along on Twitter, it was director and man-braid enthusiast Cary Joji Fukunaga. Speaking of the Emmys, if you thought the stars looked hot on the red carpet, wait until you see the behind-the-scenes snaps. This is what Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" sounds like on a recorder. (Spoiler: it's terrible.) This Parks and Recreation star put one seriously annoying Emmys seat-filler in his place and made us laugh in the process. Watch Matthew McConaughey's Emmy dreams break apart right before his eyes. The new music video for Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, and Jessie J's "Bang Bang" is here, »

While Jared Leto (and his luscious locks) may not have been in attendance at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, there were still a number of memorable hair moments among the males who were present.  Case in point?

Emmys: Jeff Jensen and Melissa Maerz on a show that made TV seem small

26 August 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Jeff Jensen: Melissa, for all the self-serving yet correct talk about how expansive and diverse and ambitious television has become over the past few years, the Emmys made TV seem rather small last night.

Maybe I lost my sense of humor over the summer (too much Rectify and Ferguson, I guess), but Seth Meyers didn’t work for me. The Late Night comedian—at his best when seated behind a desk, gleefully reading his sharp, tart jokes and engaging guests with smart chat—kept the show flowing and didn’t fumble. He was an effective game manager, but nothing more. »

Will Cary Joji Fukunaga's man braids spawn copy cats?

26 August 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Since Jared Leto didn’t walk the red carpet at Monday’s Emmys, another man’s locks had to be an object of obsession. Thank goodness True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga was on hand—and donning some excellent braids. Fukunaga won an award last night for directing the episode “Who Goes There,” but his hair emerged as the most talked about element of his appearance on the broadcast. Has the man bun given way to man braids?

The former has been around for longer than you think—The New York Times had a man bun trend piece back in »

5 Things to Know About True Detective Director Cary Fukunaga

26 August 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"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 »

Cary Fukunaga talks about wanting to win an Emmy for 'True Detective'

26 August 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles - Cary Joji Fukunaga took home an Emmy last night for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for his work on "True Detective."  On stage holding the award, he seemed less than ready for the moment.  However, he was far more eloquent chatting with HitFix's Chris Eggertsen on the red carpet earlier in the day. In fact, on the carpet Fukunaga admitted that he didn't have a speech prepared.  Instead, he said, he had "a list of names.  It's going to be the most boring thing ever if I do accept an award."  It wasn't that, but it wasn't a prepared speech either. "I can't really imagine a better first foray into television," Fukunaga said at the start of the red carpet chat.  He continued, noting his pleasure with the ratings and the critical response and then ending up at the Emmys, "What more could you ask for? »

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Have You Met Your New Emmy-Winning Boyfriend, Cary Joji Fukunaga? If Not, You Should

Step aside, Jon Hamm. Matthew McConaugh-who? Last night’s Emmy Awards proved that True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga is hotter than any A-lister we’ve previously coveted, and that man braids are making a big comeback. The internet thinks so, too.

Fukunaga has come a long way since his days as a production assistant for the Destiny’s Child “Survivor” video. Before linking up with the True Detective team, he made a name for himself on the indie circuit with Sundance hit Sin Nombre in 2009, as well as 2011′s Jane Eyre, starring Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. He directed all eight episodes of the HBO series, and won the award for Outstanding Directing of a Drama Series. When he did, Twitter exploded.

Cary Fukunaga Had Some Help With Those Braids

26 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Vulture spotted True Detective director and brand-new Emmy winner Cary Fukunaga at the HBO Emmys after-party, we had to confront him with the hard questions, like: Did he braid those man-braids himself? "Oh, I don't have these kinds of skills," Fukunaga told us. "I had help." Did he ever consider of wearing the more traditional man-bun? "Nah," he said, laughing once we'd told him how popular the man-braids had become on Twitter. "For tonight, I just thought business in the front, party in the back."Fukunaga still seemed surprised about this win, for Best Directing in a Drama Series. "I was a deer in headlights on that stage. I feel like I usually get by on speeches. Tonight, I was definitely caught off guard. But also I had a list. Not a speech, but a list, and I don’t know … I totally bumbled through the whole thing. It’s alright. »

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga was thrust into the limelight on Monday night when he won the award for outstanding directing for a drama series for True Detective.

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

Emmys 2014 highlights video

True Detective strode into the ceremony with 12 nominations, but HBOs noir-ish crime thriller limped away with just one award, with Cary Fukunaga picking up best directing, drama series. It was a surprisingly poor showing for this TV phenomenon, which is so buzzy right now that even the most speculative of casting tidbits inspires breathless excitement from fans (and one of the finest hashtags of 2014). So why did the Emmy judges leave it out in the cold?

America’s version of the TV BAFTA’s, The Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night. The cream of the televisual crop were out in force to celebrate the occasion. Whilst several big name shows including Game of Thrones and True Detective where up for several categories, it was Breaking Bad that scooped-up the main acting prizes which are whole-heartedly deserved and a fitting way to say goodbye to the show which ended last year.

Other shows that performed well were comedy series Modern Family for which Ty Burrell won best actor, and American Horror Story: Coven which saw both Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates take home the big acting trophies. Everyone’s favourite British sleuth also did well as Benedict Cumberbatch won for his role in series Sherlock.

Primetime Emmy Awards 2014 – Who Won?

25 August 2014 11:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hail to the king indeed. In the weeks leading up to today’s Primetime Emmy Awards, the question on everyone’s mind was whether voters would honor Breaking Bad, widely considered to be one of TV’s greatest series, in its absolutely stunning final season, or instead recognize newcomer True Detective, which left jaws dangling with its ambitious mixture of gritty atmosphere, philosophy and master-class acting.

The battle between the two shows for Best Drama Series – and for Best Actor In A Drama, between Bryan Cranston and Matthew McConaughey – dominated internet buzz leading up to this year’s ceremony. Now, we have our answer – it appears that, for Emmy voters, it just feels too good to be Bad. That’s right - Breaking Bad took Best Drama Series, and Cranston snagged a Best Actor trophy, his fourth for the role of chemistry teacher turned kingpin Walter White. Additionally, Aaron Paul »
