New York Governor Andrew Cuomo received an International Emmy…No not in the nursing home deaths category, but for his coronavirus briefings.
Stars like Billy Crystal and Robert De Niro congratulated him.

The academy presented the Founders Award at 48th International Emmy Awards to Governor Cuomo in a live-streamed show Monday.
Cuomo used more than 100 PowerPoint-driven slideshows with his sometimes emotional, sometimes acerbic style while guiding New Yorkers through the pandemic.
Governor Cuomo also wrote a book “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” about his coronavirus response.
Although actual death toll numbers vary, at least 9-thousand seniors died in nursing homes from the virus after Cuomo had infected patients placed in nursing homes for care.
