The Hollywood Reporter's first take on NBC's Star Trek was "there's quite a bit of suspense and tricks with gadgets that will please the sci-fi buffs no end." From this, THR concluded that the 1966 show "should be a winner." It certainly was for co-star Leonard Nimoy. Playing Spock, the half-human/half-Vulcan who served as science officer on the Starship Enterprise, the method actor, then 34, had landed a part that would come to define his career.
The Emmys occasionally have shown a soft spot for female buddy shows. The classic case would be CBS' police procedural Cagney & Lacey, which aired from 1982 to 1988. One of the show's two leads, Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless, took home the lead actress in a drama series award for six years straight. Fast-forward to 2015, and a sitcom example would be Netflix's Grace and Frankie.
“This dates to 1974-75 and was taken on one of those cheap Instamatic pocket cameras,” says Martin, whose first novel, 'Dying of the Light,' was published in 1977. When HBO announced in 2008 a pilot based on George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones — the first book in his still-to-be-finished, seven-part A Song of Ice and Fire series — THR said the show would "represent the rarest of TV genres: a full-fledged fantasy series. … The books have swords, dragons, magic, the works."
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".
