'True Detective' Creator Says Matthew McConaughey Deserves E.G.O.T. (Video)

Nic Pizzolatto tells THR he has encouraged his Emmy-nominated star to go for the honor.

He's won an Oscar and is nominated for an Emmy. Is Matthew McConaughey destined for an E.G.O.T.?

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto thinks his star could complete the coveted circuit (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) and says he's encouraged the actor to go for it.

McConaughey will compete with his True Detective co-star Woody Harrelson in the lead actor in a drama category.

Watch the video above to see why Pizzolatto has confidence in   McConaughey, and click here to read his Hollywood Reporter cover story, where he talks about season two, "stupid criticism" of his show's "woman problem" and on-set drama.

This week's magazine features two covers, and thus two cover stories; in the second, Orange Is the New Black showrunner Jenji Kohan talks Hollywood's pay inequality, "f--- you" money and her Friends regrets.
