The singer already boasts three BRITs, four Grammys, six MOBOs, a Golden Globe and an Oscar. Despite his international superstar status he's not good enough to make the five nominees for British Male according to Academy voters. Other shocks included Liam Gallagher being up for British Male but not brother Noel. Sam's rejection is particularly shocking because he had a huge No.1 album with The Thrill of It All on both sides of the Atlantic last year.
Not only is Ed the man-of-the-moment back home in Blighty, he’s also the biggest music star in the world right now. Only a major Grammy’s snub has tainted his perfect year, which included headlining at Glastonbury. Even more incredible considering he was sofa-surfing and penniless less than 10 years ago. Music’s ginger genius has had the best year of his career – and that’s saying something! He landed the biggest-selling album of 2017 with ÷, plus the biggest single with Shape of You.
In our exclusive interview he said: “I’m more worried about it being ‘Death On Ice’. I’m just not sure whose death. “I’m scared of dropping Alex on her head or tripping her over. She’s been great and has got a lot of faith in me, but I can be clumsy.
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".
