Esquire interviews Fukunaga about winning an Emmy for directing the first season of True Detective.
It’s pure recognition. It’s a really fucking amazing feeling after such a difficult, long, hard project. I’m really happy that True Detective was also recognized for cinematography, for makeup a lot of the craft parts were recognized. We really spent a lot of time trying to make it something special and elevated. And we didn’t waste an hour of a day or a weekend.
