Every year, the Primetime Emmys draw in a bigger and better crowd, as TV programming is the best it has ever been. Last night, the crowd was moved to cheers, jeers, and tears in a groundbreaking ceremony not to be forgotten. With host Stephen Colbert at the helm, the 69th Emmys was quite the show. Here are just seven of the highlights from this talked-about event. Award shows have gotten increasingly political over the years, and this year was no different.
While many filmmakers aim to please and simply entertain audiences, Darren Aronofsky is not one of them. His new movie, mother!, recently premiered, and the internet could not be more divided on how it feels about it. Like his other works, mother! is dark and disturbing, to say the least. But there are plenty of other elements that have critics and audiences talking. Here’s what they have to say.
A TV show can unite viewers, but it can also divide them. After all, what appeals to one person might rub someone else the wrong way.

While several of the following scenes are graphic in nature, others are shocking for more surprising reasons. Based on personal opinion and collective outrage, the following TV moments are ranked from least to most controversial.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
