I think you brought attention to the plight of all inanimate objects in Oscar-nominated movies. There are many other inanimate objects like you, Plastic Sniper Baby. Those who are unnoticed in film if all goes well and blamed if it all goes wrong. So take heart and start reaching out to these other inanimate objects in Oscar-caliber movies. They’ll embrace you gladly, if they have arms and if those arms are already in an embrace-like configuration.

2. The Science Oven from American Hustle
“…you just buy it, she’s a lot of fun and she really conveys that in the film.” - Christian Bale

3. The boulder in 127 Hours

9. The bowling pin from There Will Be Blood
“Well, we spent a couple of months together in New York. I just remember a lot of eating breakfast and a lot of walking around, more or less getting to know each other and not talking that much about the movie—just this flirtation, like dogs sniffing each other out, to get to know somebody that you’re gonna get married to. We decided that we would make the film together, or more to the point, he decided that he would make the film with me.” - Paul Thomas Anderson
