She's Back In The Spotlight

(Starts at 7:46) 

Renée Zellweger is no stranger to singing roles — she got an Academy Award nomination for her role in "Chicago." And now she's at the Telluride Film Festival for the premiere of "Judy," in which she plays Judy Garland. Zellweger is also getting a tribute to her career at the festival, and she spoke about all that with John Horn.

The Actors Union Stays The Course

(Starts at 00:45) 

Guest host Steven Cuevas talks with Dave McNary of Variety about his reporting on this week's SAG-AFTRA board election: "Gabrielle Carteris has been re-elected president of SAG-AFTRA, fending off challenges from Matthew Modine and three other contenders ... The election comes with SAG-AFTRA, the Writers Guild of America and the Directors Guild of America  heading into what are sure to be complicated master film and TV contract negotiations early next year with the major studios, via the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The SAG-AFTRA and DGA deals expire on June 30 and the WGA deal ends on May 1."

A Veteran Soul Man Gets His Due

If you’ve seen "The Last Black Man in San Francisco," you might have been struck by the film’s powerful reimagining of a famous hippie anthem. R&B singer Michael Marshall transforms “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers In Your Hair)” and he also happens to be the original vocalist on “I Got Five On It,” a hit song from the 1990s that makes a prominent appearance in another of this summer’s most talked-about movie releases, Jordan Peele’s "Us." The Frame contributor Chloe Veltman recently met up with Marshall in the Bay Area. After fighting for recognition for decades, Veltman says the singer might now be starting to get his due.
