As the nominees await tonight's big ceremony, they can take heart in the fact that even if they don't walk home with the golden statuette named Oscar, they can make one on their own (with the help of a 3D printer).

Check it out below and visit his YouTube page. (Disclaimer: you can recreate the statuette, but it will not be an actual Oscar, which is, of course, trademarked).
