Actress Meryl Streep has said Oprah Winfrey has "the voice of a leader", as speculation swirls that the chat show queen may mount a presidential bid. Referring to Oprah's speech at this weekend's Golden Globes, Streep told the BBC's Andrew Marr: "That is how you rouse people. That is how you lead." And the actress said she had heard that Oprah "is really considering" running. She "certainly set the bar pretty high for anybody else who decides to run" for president in 2020, Streep added.
It's often said there aren't enough good roles for women. The truth is there are loads of them – the problem is they generally tend to get given to blokes. This isn't as facetious as it sounds. Take a look at some of the performances that have landed male actors Oscar nominations in recent years and it's clear they could have quite easily been given to female actors had someone with authority decided to go that way at an early stage in production.
Unlike the Oscars and other awards ceremonies, the Golden Globes divides its prizes between dramas and musicals or comedies.What that means is layman's terms is that there are twice as many glittering statuettes to go around - and twice as many acceptance speeches to get through before the curtain finally falls.We'll get around to the television categories in due course, but for now let's concentrate on the film awards - and the two main acting prizes.In the best actor in a drama category,...
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".
