I have no idea how [some of these are] Oscar nominees.

Three of the five nominees are about women, and it's hardly a surprise that their fresh perspective results in stories that are new and original.

True, most of these films deal with depressing subject matter like illness, loneliness and government suppression, but just about all of them inspire hope and belief in the human spirit.

One source for all the nominated films.

"The Phone Call" stars "Blue Jasmine's" Sally Hawkins as a shy crisis center worker who is rescued from a life of loneliness by the depressed widower (Jim Broadbent, strongly felt although never seen) whose call she takes.
