When Salma Hayek came to the States, she faced a lot of rejection. “I was rejected over and over, and everybody told me, ‘You will never make it in this town. You’re Mexican, you have an accent,’” she says. Nevertheless, she persisted, and with 2002’s “Frida,” Hayek became the first and only Mexican woman to be nominated in the lead actress category — and the iconic painter remains her biggest artistic inspiration.
Two-time Oscar nominee and supporting actress winner Melissa Leo is still getting used to the limelight. “It’s a struggle that I frankly have had, of not having grown up as an actress walking red carpets and being seen in places, except my work,” she says. “And now, at fiftysomething years old, this old actor finds she’s got to find a graceful way to walk in that world.” She credits costume designer greats including Ann Roth and Marlene Stewart for teaching her how to dress for her body.
Kardashian family matriarch and “momager” Kris Jenner is certainly doing something right. Ten years after the debut of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” a newly inked deal ensures the hit reality show will remain on E! for another five seasons in a multimillion-dollar renewal deal. After 20-year-old Kylie Jenner launched her wildly popular signature Lip Kits, Jenner helped her daughter found Kylie Cosmetics — which made $420 million in retail sales over the first 18 months.
@Variety Fashion Flashblack - the Awards Season edition kicks off in today's Oscar Issue with @MelissaLeo! @MarcBouwer designed this white gown even before he knew she was nominated for "The Fighter." ("For me, this is the dress of my lifetime,” she said.) https://t.co/wOIhrQ00eB
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".
