A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay took home the big win during the 49th annual NAACP Image Awards and in the precious time she had on stage, the NAACP's newly-minted Entertainer of the Year did something remarkable. She used her time to shout out a litany of television shows and movies featuring or made by people of color. Dee Rees and Mudbound. Ryan Coogler and Black Panther. Courtney Kemp and Power. Shonda Rhimes and Grey's Anatomy.
The 49th annual NAACP Image Awards are unique in that they celebrate achievements by people of color in literature, film, music and television. This year’s live telecast is hosted by Anthony Anderson and is broadcast on TV One. In advance of the Jan. 15 telecast, a number of people were already awarded at a pre-telecast gala held on the Sunday before the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Diversity may not have been a literal winner at the 2018 Golden Globes, but it was certainly top of everyone’s mind from the nominations, to the social chatter before and after the show, to the topics discussed on the red carpet and in the acceptance speeches. Black actors made history twice during the presentation, with Oprah Winfrey becoming the first black woman awarded with the Cecil B. DeMille award.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
