The countdown to the Oscars is officially on, but as we await the big show on Feb. 28, there are plenty of pressing questions on our minds. Who will be the fashion winner of the night? Who will bring their mom to the red carpet, making ladies everywhere swoon? And will Leonardo DiCaprio finally (finally!) bring home some hardware for his role in The Revenant?
Luckily, there’s a great new way to pass the time leading up to the big event, and it could even be more fun than the show itself. Introducing Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage, a new video game featuring the actor as he tries to dodge icebergs and Lady Gaga on the red carpet, and find a black nominee among the crowds.
The online game comes from The Line Animation, and is reminiscent of the original Nintendo era when graphics were choppy and the tasks were fairly simple. To win the game, the player must run down the red carpet really fast using the “G” and “H” keys, and jump with the space bar to collect Golden Globe trophies and dodge photogs in between. Then there are the bonus rounds, in which Leo must “act harder,” or outrun Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in order to get the trophy first.
Obviously this will in no way actually help Leo win the award on the big night, but with a Golden Globe, a SAG award and now a starring role in a video game under his belt, we’d say it’s a darn shame if he doesn’t come home the night’s big winner.
