For a long time, the booze-soaked Golden Globe Award Show hung its credibility on its position as Academy Award prognosticator. Unfortunately for the Hollywood Foreign Press, 826’s Nate Silver looked into the claim in 2013 and found that over the past 25 years, the Golden Globes’ Best Picture—Drama only correlated with the Best Picture Oscar 48% of the time. In fact, the Director Guild of America’s awards were the most predictive, matching the Oscars 80% of the time.
A great movie trailer is a magical thing — it’s like a boulder atop a hill, all that potential energy waiting to burst forth. The best trailers are built to leave a theater full of viewers excited for an entirely different story than the one for which they came. The most anticipated films of 2018 look a lot like those of 2017 — there are superheroes, animated stories, sequels, and horror movies.
The network sitcom is part cage and part canvas. The tight constraints of FCC regulators and the structure built by commercial breaks can lead some comedians to crash and burn in the format. But the best creators find ways to elevate the form — Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David used ad breaks to create little intertwined jokes; Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant played with the fourth wall; and Dan Harmon had fun with old-school conventions like the Christmas special.

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".
