OUTSTANDING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

OUTSTANDING DIRECTING FOR A DRAMA SERIES

True Detective – “Who Goes There,” directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga

While HBO was probably too ambitious entering True D as a Drama Series and not a Miniseries, you’ve got to give Cary Joji Fukunaga props, if only for choreographing this epic 6-minute-single-take-tracking-shot in the episode he won the category for.
