Help Leo Finally Win His Oscar In This Cute Little Video Game

Leo really, really wants an Oscar for his performance in The Revenant, did you hear?The world's most obvious and desperate Oscar grab has now been made into a video game—called Leo's Red Carpet Rampage—where you can play Leonardo DiCaprio as he races against fellow Best Actor nominees down the red carpet and picks up lesser awards along the way and dodges Lady Gaga, the paparazzi, and icebergs.

The game, produced by The Line Animation, also includes Capcom-esque side quests, such as one based on Jordan Belfort's Quaaludes trip from The Wolf of Wall Street, one where you have to "act harder," and type his acceptance speech for him. Hopefully he'll get to read it!

I'll admit, I still haven't gotten Leo his Oscar yet in my few attempts at Red Carpet Rampage. Mashing the G and H keys while racing down the Red Carpet against Bryan Cranston as Trumbo makes your hands hurt.
