Leonardo DiCaprio has been nominated for an Academy Award five times in his 27-year career, but he’s always gone home empty handed on Oscar night. This year, DiCaprio has his sixth Oscar nod (and his fourth nomination for Best Actor) for his role as Hugh Glass in The Revenant. And while his chances seem good this time, a new parody video game puts players in control of DiCaprio as he seeks out his ultimate prize.
The Line Animation has created Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage, a new arcade-style game that literally puts DiCaprio in a race for his beloved Oscar. Leo will attempt to leap over paparazzi, avoid Lady Gaga, and outrun his rivals Bryan Cranston, Michael Fassbender and Eddie Redmayne. Cranston is surprisingly fast in this game, and who knew how well Redmayne could move in that dress? He really is a wizard!
That was just the gameplay video. Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage actually exists in playable form, and you can check it out here. The game itself is about as simple as it can possibly be. Your success or failure depends entirely on how fast you can press G and H to keep DiCaprio moving. But, if you’re good at button-mashers then you should be able to lead DiCaprio to Oscar gold in no time at all!
What did you think of Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage? Will this be the year that DiCaprio earns his moment of glory at the Oscars? Fight off a bear and share your thoughts below!
