Steve Carell is back in the Oscar race with “Battle of the Sexes,” the latest collaboration between the actor and “Little Miss Sunshine” directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton. Based on a true story, the film recounts the 1973 tennis match between World number one champ Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Carell).
One of the surprise hits of the summer was “The Big Sick,” the Lionsgate and Amazon Studios comedy about a Pakistani comedian (Kumail Nanjiani) who falls in love with an American girl (Zoe Kazan), much to the chagrin of his traditional Muslim family. Their relationship takes an unexpected turn when she falls into a medically-induced coma, and he takes charge of the situation when her parents (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) arrive.
With “Battle of the Sexes” opening in 2017, Emma Stone is once again squarely in the Best Actress Oscar race after having won for “La La Land.” Directed by Valerie Ferris and Jonathan Dayton (“Little Miss Sunshine”), the film recounts the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Stone) and ex-champ Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). In honor of her new film, let’s take a look back at 10 of Stone’s greatest film performances.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
