You could feel it coming in the air on Sunday night. And by it, we mean “a palpable lack of buzz for the 2018 Oscars.” After enduring an interminable slog of an awards season, by the time the nearly four-hour show wrapped on Sunday night, it seemed as if more people were talking about the movie that didn’t win the Best Picture Oscar (Get Out) than the one that did (The Shape Of Water).
The 90th Academy Awards are being held on Sunday March 5, and we all know what the most important moment of the evening is going to be. Best Actress? No way. Best Picture? Not even if Warren and Faye screw it up again. No sir, the most memorable segment of the evening is always The In Memoriam segment! This annual mash-up of Hollywood’s recently deceased, tinted in sepia and accompanied by maudlin music, is infinitely more complex in nature than your standard awards show montage.
Jonathan Demme734/26/17...DIRECTORS. Demme has a tremendous shot at being the anchor this year, thanks to his Oscar victory for Best Director at 1991's ceremony (Silence Of The Lambs). It's tough to find a more beloved figure in the Hollywood community who died in the last year; you can count Demme directly responsible for landing everyone from Tom Hanks to Jodie Foster to Anne Hathaway to Denzel Washington Oscar nominations (and in the case of Hanks and Foster, some wins, too).
@arainert The former. I feel like I am constantly having to login as a subscriber across my many devices (which are all Apple and all linked). I think Times is the only paywall product I use consistently, hence my irritation.
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".
