Something strange is happening in the Oscar race right now. I have a theory about it. But sometimes my theories get me into trouble, especially here in Salem. I mean, Hollywood. But I’ll give you mine and that is simply this: the two movies that seem to be fighting for how to best represent the industry in the post-Trump atmosphere are Lady Bird and Get Out.
Sorry this is so late. Here are the winners for the PGA who got all 3 correct: Giora Arie Sebastien Bertrand Alice Bertucci Adam Carnelli Myles Daigneault Patricia de Carvalho Simone Fabriziani Tyler Geditz TONY GOMEZ David hanks Derek Johns Terence Lyle Michael Mahoney Zsolt Őri Rafael Pereira Barton Randall Kevin Spellman Balu VellankiHere are those who got Shape of Water as the winner correct:
Okay Oscarwatchers, here we go. You get three and they have to be real long shots, not your alternates. We know there are going to be SOME, but predicting them is hard. If you happen to predict it correctly – shoot me an email to let me know. Meryl Streep getting in isn’t a No Guts, No Glory. Judi Dench? Yeah, that would count. 1) Dee Rees nominated for Best Director 2) Brooklynn Prince in for The Florida Project 3) Tracy Letts gets in for Lady Bird
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".
