The 2015 theatrical release of Oscar-nominated short films has some unusually strong offerings this year in the live-action category. There's even a tie, in my opinion, for the best of the category - "Aya" and "The Phone Call."
The five shorts open as a package Friday at Sundance Cinema, which also is showing the animated shorts as a package. The documentary shorts can be seen at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, on Saturday and Feb. 8, 20 and 21. The Academy Awards ceremony will be Feb. 22.
