The briefings were carried live by New York's local TV stations, nationally on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and other news outlets in the USA and around the world.

"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", International Academy President & CEO, Bruce Paisner said in a press release. That 12-minute introduction, part of a 34-minute session with other state leaders, was the first of 111 consecutive daily briefings for New Yorkers and the wider world about the grim progress of the worst pandemic to hit the United States in a century.

Andrew Cuomo will receive an worldwide Emmy Award for using television to communicate with residents during the coronavirus pandemic, the group announced Friday. Andrew Cuomo's coronavirus briefings have been essential or tyrannical; informative or contentious; entertaining or maddening.

Between March and June, Cuomo's daily briefings have become must-see TV as he's laid out, in sometimes brutally blunt fashion, the dangers of a disease that's now claimed the lives of more than 250,000 Americans, engaged in a war of words with President Donald Trump, and included fascinating choices of visual aids.

Notable people on social media quickly lashed out at Cuomo for receiving the honor, pointing to his poor handling of the nursing home policy that was connected to the deaths of many elderly residents in NY.

Cuomo's latest recognition shows he's popular beyond American borders.

Past recipients of the honorary Founder's Award include Vice President Al Gore, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. In 2006, he was elected New York State Attorney General.

Still, the news wasn't universally well-received.

"This is shameful", "The View" co-host Meghan McCain tweeted.
