We've seen the movies and cast our picks, but as Hollywood's biggest night draws near, there's only one question in mind: Who will take home the Oscar? Celebrities will walk the red carpet and take their seats on Sunday for the 84th Academy Awards slated to begin at 8:30 p.m. ET on February 26, 2012. The show will be broadcast on ABC, and host Billy Crystal will attempt to entertain the crowd for the first time since 2004.
British starlets Sophia Grace and Rosie have made yet another triumphant return to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," this time rapping to Keri Hilson and doing some freestyling of their own. In the video above, the girls sing to Hilson's "Turn My Swag On" right before Sophia Grace erupts into a clever freestyle describing the duo's recent rise to fame. "We're going to the top of Hollywood, and it's official, but dad's in the crowd crying, here's a tissue," the British starlet belts out.
At the wise age of 51, Shayne is believed to be the world's oldest horse. The liver chestnut-Irish Draught cross lives at the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Essex, where he enjoys spa-like treatments, daily walks and high-calorie meals, the Sun reports. A few grey hairs and a mild case of arthritis are all that hint at Shayne's old age. Otherwise, the horse is in great condition.
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".
