And the award for best put-down of a disgraced ex-governor by a former rival goes to…
Former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon danced on former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s political grave Tuesday, following the rescinding of the Emmy he was awarded last year for his daily coronavirus briefings.
“The difference between me and Andrew Cuomo? Neither of us is governor, but I still have my Emmy(s),” she tweeted.
Nixon — who unsuccessfully challenged Cuomo for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in 2018 — won two primetime Emmy awards, in 2004 and 2008, according to the IMDb website.
The first is for her signature supporting role as Miranda Hobbes on HBO’s “Sex and the City,” which is currently shooting the third movie from the show, and the second is for a guest appearance on NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
She also has three other nominations, including for playing Eleanor Roosevelt in the 2005 HBO movie “Warm Springs.”
Cuomo was stripped of his special International Emmy Award hours over Attorney General Letitia James’ devastating report that accused him of sexually harassing 11 women, including nine current or former state workers, and his resulting resignation, which took effect at the end of Monday.
During her bitter campaign against Cuomo, Nixon called him “famously vengeful” and said she decided to challenge him because “bullies have to be confronted.”
Although Cuomo outspent her 10-to-1, Nixon’s progressive platform forced him to move to the left on issues including marijuana legalization and restoring voting rights to ex-cons.
