In 2014, Holly Tarquini, the executive director of the Bath Film Festival in England, came across an article on the dismal gender imbalance in Hollywood and decided to create a special designation to highlight films made by women. So she created the “F-rating,” a designation that over 40 film festivals have since adopted. Now, the Guardian reports that the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), the largest online movie database, has begun using the classification, too.
In the second-to-last episode of Love’s second season, which landed on Netflix a couple weekends ago, Gus (Paul Rust) is drawn to an unlikely place when his relationship with Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) is called into question. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the new season.) An on-set tutor, Gus has spent a month away from his new girlfriend while his young client shoots a movie in Atlanta, and it doesn’t take long for the separation to strain their nascent relationship.
“Waterloo,” the satisfying finale to the first half of Mad Men’s seventh and final season, featured the death of a major character. It was also surprisingly warm-hearted, the truncated season’s brightest episode, full of hope for the future as 1970 looms just a few months away.
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".
