He made headlines worldwide with his outrageous remarks when he hosted last year's Golden Globes. And Ricky Gervais has landed his first blow against Hollywood's elite even before he reprises his role for the 2012 edition on Sunday. The previously portly star had a snap taken outside a Los Angeles plastic surgery clinic, in which he adopted a funny face and posed with a fistful of dollars.
His motives still remain shrouded in mystery. But it seems Captain Kirk may have met his match in Benedict Cumberbatch's character John Harrison if the latest Star Trek Into Darkness trailer is anything to go by. Following the dastardly character's terrorist attack on Earth, it seems the maverick commanding officer decides to disobey orders and catch the villain single handed. But it seems to backfire spectacularly, with the Enterprise itself seemingly destroyed due to Jim's foolhardiness.
It seems Marion Cotillard is willing to go the extra furlong to support her partner Guillaume Canet. For the glamorous French actress was the finest filly of the evening at the premiere of his new showjumping film in Paris on Tuesday. She was the very personification of Parisian chic as she attended the opening of Jappeloup in the French capital. Her 39-year-old partner is the star of the picture, which tells the story of the legendary horse who won gold at the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
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".
