Even if you have a high tolerance for jokes about Donald Trump, the 69th annual Emmys ceremony, with its countless references to Trump and to how television is responding to his presidency, was bound to test your patience. Fortunately, host Stephen Colbert and his fellow presenters kept things moving at a rapid clip. And there was still time for some memorable moments -- some hilarious, some poignant, some appalling. Here are the awards telecast's highs and lows.
"L.A. Confidential" isn't just one of the best crime dramas of the past two decades; it's also one of the best movies -- period -- of the past two decades. Released 20 years ago this week (on September 19, 1997), the film was faithful to the spirit of James Ellroy's epic noir novel of corruption and paranoia in 1950s La-La Land. It gave early Hollywood career boosts to Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce, made an A-list director out of the late Curtis Hanson, and even won an Oscar for Kim Basinger.
Hide your bunnies! It's the 30th anniversary of "Fatal Attraction," which hit theaters on September 18, 1987. The hottest hot-button movie of its era, this drama about the drastic consequences of a one-night-stand sparked countless uncomfortable discussions about sex, feminism, and infidelity. "Fatal Attraction" also gave Glenn Close the pivotal role of her career and spawned the whole "Scorned Lover from Hell" subgenre of thrillers about vengeful stalkers.
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".
