"This Is Us" star Sterling K. Brown made history last night -- becoming the first black actor to win the outstanding lead actor in a drama series category in two decades. But his historic moment was sadly cut short onstage when the customary music signaled his time had come to an end. Although Brown stayed at the microphone, soon the lights dimmed and the camera panned out.
"Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross once again will be up for an Emmy as best actress in a comedy, when the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards are handed out Sunday night. While Ross is hopeful, she knows an award is no lock for her given the competition she faces. "I mean these are women that not only influenced my career, but my life," Ross told ABC News. "Lily Tomlin? Jane Fonda? Can we stop right there?"
For the fourth consecutive season, "Bachelor in Paradise" has led to an engagement. After production on the show wrapped, Derek Peth proposed to Taylor Nolan during the taping of a reunion special, which aired Monday, and she accepted. Though Nolan told Peth that she didn't want to ever get engaged in front of an audience, he was determined to surprise her -- and it worked.
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".
