Cuomo's honorary Emmy rescinded after sexual harassment report, resignation
The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences on Tuesday rescinded the honorary Emmy it awarded former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Why it matters: The decision comes "in light of" an independent investigation that found the former governor sexually harassed multiple women and after Cuomo formally resigned from his post, the academy said.
- Cuomo was initially given the award for his use of television to provide information to viewers during the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, per Variety.
- Any reference to Cuomo receiving the award will be removed from materials going forward, the academy said.
