Andrew Cuomo's coronavirus briefings have been essential or tyrannical; informative or contentious; entertaining or maddening.

The Emmy awards are similar to the Academy Awards' Oscars.

NY governor Andrew Cuomo was selected to win an Emmy for "his masterful use of TV to inform & calm people around the world".

Andrew Cuomo will receive an Emmy for his leadership at the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, according to Fox News.

"The Governor's 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure", said Bruce L. Paisner, president and CEO of the International Academy, in a press release.

State reports five COVID-related deaths in Collin County today, Friday
State officials listed five deaths and 32 new cases of COVID-19 in Collin County and are reporting a total of 22,369 confirmed cases to date.

New York City became the epicenter of the nation's COVID outbreak this past spring, which lead to a statewide shutdown of schools and businesses and daily news briefings by Cuomo.

The politician hit peak popularity in late April when fans of his passionate handling of the pandemic branded themselves "Cuomosexuals".

The Founders Award, which has previously been bestowed upon the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and former Vice President Al Gore, is awarded to those who "cross cultural boundaries to touch our common humanity". It is presented at numerous annual events held throughout the calendar year, each honoring one of the various sectors of the television industry.

Cuomo has not reacted to the news of his win on social media, but he won't be the only member of his family to boast that he has won the award. Meghan McCain, now on maternity leave from her day job as the resident conservative commentator on ABC's The View, took to Twitter to voice her displeasure.
