TORONTO — How many of you, when you heard that there was a new Tonya Harding biopic in the works, responded with a silently mocking “Why? Why? Whyyyyyy?”Was there any compelling reason to revisit the sordid tale of a washed-up figure skater turned national joke and celebrity boxer? Could we have predicted the sharp, snarling, pitch-perfect “I, Tonya” that is now emerging as maybe the most unlikely critical darling in the history of the Toronto International Film Festival?
TORONTO – Matt Damon comes in two sizes at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival: regular and miniature. In “Suburbicon,” he plays a seemingly clean-cut 1950s family man with a troublesome dark side, and in “Downsizing” he shrinks to 5 inches tall as part of an experiment in population control. Of course at any size Damon is a big screen asset.
Who will win an Oscar? Who should? Advertisement W ith a record-tying 14 nominations, "La La Land" is poised to sweep the 89th Academy Awards, and there's certainly precedent for its dominance - not only during this year's prize season, where Damien Chazelle's musical romance has collected a groaning board of bling, but also from previous Oscar years, given Hollywood's penchant for rewarding movies about Hollywood.
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".
