For his "effective use of television during the pandemic," New York's governor will receive an International Emmy award, his theatrical delivery of fearmongering and hysterics far surpassing that of all other politicians.
Bruce Paisner, president and CEO of the International Academy, had nothing but praise for Cuomo, noting that the brother of CNN's Chris "Fredo" Cuomo has done an outstanding job keeping the gullible public tuned in to the global Hollywood production.
"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," Paisner stated.
"People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and 'New York tough' became a symbol of the determination to fight back."
On Nov. 23, Cuomo was presented with the award during the International Emmy's "Founders Award" event, which was live-streamed to whoever actually watches such a thing.
Cuomo's Emmy award came just two days after he mocked and berated a reporter for asking whether or not New York City's public schools would remain open in light of rising Covid-19 "cases."
Fredo's brother apparently became frustrated at the question, which he called "obnoxious and offensive," insisting that school openings and closures have followed a specific guidance throughout the entire plandemic.
The International Emmy organization was apparently impressed by Cuomo's handling of this reporter, as well as with his sending of "medically stable" Covid-19 patients to nursing homes back in the spring.
Despite killing off a bunch of old people with this decision, Cuomo's performance is worthy of an award, the group says, as well as international renown for how other countries should model their plandemic response.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is not as thrilled, though, having launched a probe into Cuomo's now-rescinded policy to intermix Covid-19 patients with healthy nursing home residents.
According to the latest Associated Press estimate, as many as 11,000 nursing home residents were killed by Cuomo's decision. This number includes Son Kim, the uncle of Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens), who was killed by Cuomo's policy.
"I've never heard of anything like this in my entire life," Kim lamented about Cuomo's Emmy award, calling it "another demoralizing moment" in Cuomo's career.
"He's getting all the credit to celebrate his win, and I think it's just wrong. There are too many people struggling still for him to be taking a victory lap."
Rep. Tom Reed (R-Corning) had much harsher words for Cuomo's Emmy award, calling it a "sick joke" that is illustrative of why "so many Americans are fed up with Hollywood elites."
"The governor's refusal to use these briefings to answer basic questions, including New York's disastrous nursing home policies that killed thousands of our state's grandparents and parents, is not worth celebrating."
City Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) threw some humor into his critique, saying that if Cuomo is worthy of an Emmy award then Bill Buckner should have received a Gold Glove Award for his crucial error in the 1986 World Series when he let an easy ground ball pass through his legs, leading to a Mets comeback and championship.
State Republican Chairman Nick Langworthy commented that Cuomo's Emmy award is "proof positive that Hollywood lives in its own alternate reality," adding that it is highly "offensive to so many families that lost loved ones in New York."
