International TV academy rescinds Cuomo's Emmy for COVID briefings

Source: Reuters

LOS ANGELES, Aug 24 (Reuters) - The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said on Tuesday it had revoked a special Emmy award given to former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for his COVID-19 briefings in 2020, given his resignation from office.

Cuomo had received the International Emmy Founders Award for his "masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world," the organization said in November 2020, when it announced the award.

Cuomo stepped down as governor on Monday after a state investigation concluded he sexually harassed women who worked for him. He at times expressed regret for making young women uncomfortable, but denied criminal wrongdoing,

In light of the investigation and Cuomo's resignation, the television academy "is rescinding his special 2020 International Emmy Award," the group said in a statement.

4. Quite petty and small. Those updates were informative and he did a great job of calming a lot of

people. His behavior in office had nothing to do with his outstanding performance on the updates to Covid. Screw the Academy.

13. Agreed.

He managed to turn things around here in New York with his guidance - unlike TFG.

9. Yes, it is. Those briefings had no connection to sex charges.

3. Still shocked by the people on this form whose first reaction is

to take Cuomo's side on something. "Never badmouth a democrat"...Fuck that. And fuck Cuomo and anybody here who thinks he's anything more than a scumbag.

11. I was a Cuomo critic early and thought he should have resigned months ago but...

I'm not sure that such actions are really necessary when an individual's bad acts are uncovered. However, it's the International TV Academy's right to make the decision that makes the most sense for their organization.
