Bucket-of-Bolts Awards - My Favorite Non-Living Film Characters

Inspired by Aaron and Todd Gaines, I've decided to create my own "favorite character" list with a twist. These are my favorite "non-living characters" in movies I've seen. And because these unfortunate, undervalued non-humans receive no formal recognition at major film events, I'm giving each of them a "Bucket-of-Bolts Award." Although the list itself is ranked from very best to least best, the winners in alphabetical order are:

- Arthur
- Athena
- Data
- David 8
- False Maria
- GERTY
- Gort
- HAL 9000
- Kyoko
- Number 5
- R2-D2
- Robby
- Robot
- S1M0NE
- Samantha
- T-1000
- TARS
- Ted
- V.I.K.I.
- Wilson
