“I genuinely didn’t think I would win because all the websites said I was gonna lose,” exclaimed Aziz Ansari on stage when claiming the 2018 Golden Globe for his work on Netflix’s “Master of None.” (See full list of Golden Globes TV winners.) Ansari wasn’t wrong about being the underdog. Here at Gold Derby only 6 of our 18 experts from leading publications predicted him to prevail, and I was the only person who thought he would triumph from our in-house editorial team.
Can “Downsizing,” which debuted to great acclaim at the Venice film festival, make a dent in this year’s Oscar derby? At the helm is writer/director Alexander Payne who is one of the most reliable Oscar contenders of the past 15 years. His last three films have all scored him Oscar nominations for Best Director: “Sideways” (2004), “The Descendants” (2011) and “Nebraska” (2013). All three films also received Best Picture nominations.
“I love going to award shows,” confesses “Stranger Things” star Noah Schnapp in our recent webchat (watch the exclusive video above). “When I was six, seven years old, I would go into bed with my mom and watch all the award shows. I remember thinking the whole time ‘what if I was on that stage? How cool would that be?’ I feel so lucky that I get to go to all these award shows and meet all these amazing actors. And then we won at the SAG Awards!
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".
