The 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards were held this past Sunday at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The award show, which honors outstanding film and television performances, had its first host ever: Kristin Bell. Bell reminded everyone why the awards are particularly meaningful, especially for those who make up the Screen Actors Guild. “The SAG Awards is a show for actors by actors and not just the ones in this room,” said Bell during her opening monologue.
For Mark Cuban, one of the best parts of being on ABC’s Shark Tank is experiencing how the show inspires others. “It sends the message to kids that the American Dream is alive and well,” says the entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks owner. “With hard work, anyone, no matter who you are or where you are from, can start a business.”But being a shark for seven seasons isn’t always all seriousness. Cuban has experienced his share of silliness. Case in point: Watch his blooper reel below.
In 1987 Rainn Wilson was living in New York City when he and his girlfriend placed an ad in The Village Voice that they were seeking a roommate for their two bedroom Chelsea pad. The man who moved in with them turned out to be a kindred spirit. “We got along great. He had a very odd sense of humor,” recalls Wilson about the guy. “At the time, he wanted to be a painter and was doing large canvases and painting and drawing a lot.”The man was Will Eno.
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".
