“Girls Trip” pulled off an upset at the NAACP Image Awards on Monday when it won Best Picture over “Get Out.” While the Oscar frontrunner had to settle for just a Best Actor win, that trophy for Daniel Kaluuya, along with the two pre-telecast ceremony wins for writer/director Jordan Peele, brought its total haul to three. “Black-ish” won three awards on the main ceremony: Best Comedy Series and for leads Anthony Anderson, who was also the host of these kudos on TV One, and Tracee Ellis Ross.
While “Get Out” added the Best Actor trophy for Daniel Kaluuya to its two pre-telecast ceremony wins at this year’s NAACP Image Awards, the Oscar frontrunner lost Best Picture to the raucous road comedy “Girls Trip” on Monday’s live broadcast of the 49th annual edition of these prizes. Octavia Spencer got a companion trophy to her 2012 supporting actress win for “The Help” when she picked up the lead actress prize for “Gifted.
Voting for the Academy Awards nominations ended last Friday (Jan. 12) and our 29 Oscar experts from major media outlets spent the holiday weekend updating their predictions for Best Picture. While their votes remain split between seven films, five of these are far out front of the other two. Martin McDonagh‘s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” swept the Golden Globes on Jan. 7 and got another bounce when the writer/director reaped a bid from the DGA on Jan. 11.
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".
