In some ways Margaret Qualley, a classically trained ballerina and the youngest daughter of Andie MacDowell and model Paul Qualley, was destined for Novitiate, the Sundance-winning drama about a young nun struggling to stay pure in a strict 1950s convent. More than halfway through the film, the internal conflict manifests itself physically: Qualley, dressed in a nightgown, looks on in fear as her spiderlike fingers twitch with desire for another sister.
There’s a point during this year’s must-see Broadway musical about a teen embroiled in a whopper of a lie when something crazy happens: Every member of the audience ugly-cries. The catalyst? Ben Platt, 23, who plays Evan and whose Pitch Perfect–honed charm (he was dorky Benji) betrays a voice so full of emotion that—as he sings one of many Tony-bound ballads—words fail. We asked him what it's like to reduce audiences to rubble eight times a week.
Keri Russell has called her suspenseful FX spy drama, The Americans, "a show that's about a complicated marriage." While each episode features enough botched kidnappings to give Tony Soprano heartburn, fans of the cult favorite relish the quiet moments between Elizabeth (Russell) and Phillip Jennings (Matthew Rhys). Unfortunately, a tertiary character interrupts most copacetic moments between the married KGB operatives: their Nancy Drew of a daughter, Paige (Holly Taylor).
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".
