Why are robots almost always humanoid?

This is something that I think pretty quaint every time I see robots depicted in movies. I mean, is the human form really the most efficient model to pattern robots after? I think making robots look like us in media fosters the fear that they will be replacing us in the future.

I doubt that the human design is the most efficient one out there. I'm thinking they choose to use bipedal designs since they most likely study human movement a lot. And it seriously looks cool to have a human-like design.

If anything, the most efficient design would be similar to the builds of insects and other "simpler" animals.
