With the Oscars coming up, many people wonder if this will be the year that Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar for Best Actor. He’s been nominated for his role in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s brutal period film The Revenant, in which he plays a grunting revenge-fueled analog for Wile E. Coyote.
The people over at The Line Animation have dramatized this Oscar race with an online game called Leo’s Red Carpet Rampage. Run after that Oscar, grab other awards for bonus points, stomp on photographers and journalists, avoid Lady Gaga, and much more, including a great #OscarsSoWhite gag. (Thankfully, no rapey bears.)
To give you an idea of what the gameplay is like, check out the video below.
Yeah, guys. I failed on my first attempt. But so did Leonardo DiCaprio. (And so did Wile E. Coyote.)
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better, Leo.
We’ll see how DiCaprio does IRL when the Oscars air on February 28th.[via /Film]
