The organization behind the International Emmys rescinded former New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s Emmy award on Tuesday.

The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced that “in light of the New York Attorney General’s report, and Andrew Cuomo’s subsequent resignation as governor, it is rescinding his special 2020 International Emmy® Award.”

The statement added that Cuomo’s “name and any reference to his receiving the award will be eliminated from International Academy materials going forward.”

Cuomo was initially awarded the Emmy in fall 2020 for his performance during press briefings on the state of the coronavirus pandemic in New York.

The Academy said at the time that Cuomo would receive the award “in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world,” according to a statement. “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.”
