It's almost a sure thing that Leonardo DiCaprio will win the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in the movie The Revenant on Feb. 28. However, fans can help Leo race to the end of the red carpet and onto the stage to finally accept the golden statue for sure thanks to this Web browser game.
Created by the Line Animation at Electric Theatre Collective and designed by Max Van der Merve, Bjorn-Erik Aschim and Sam Taylor, Leo's Red Carpet Rampage is an 8-bit style arcade platform game where the player helps the famous actor — who has been nominated four previous times and has yet to win — take home his much-deserved prize.
To play Leo's Red Carpet Rampage, the gamer simply uses the "G" and "H" keys repeatedly to have the actor run as fast as he can down the red carpet. While that sounds a whole lot easier then eating raw bison, of course there are obstacles along the way. These include photographers (jump over them using the space bar), Lady Gaga (who will trip you) and even icebergs.
The player will have to embrace their inner Wolf of Wall Street mindset in order to beat out the Titanic star's competitors, including Eddie Redmayne, Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon and Michael Fassbender, who are also racing toward that Oscar. These actors all appear as the characters they play in the films for which they are nominated, and nothing is better than watching an 8-bit astronaut and Steve Jobs sprinting toward victory.
Along the carpet, the player also can help Leo get other awards, such as Golden Globes, Emmys, MTV Movie Awards, Baftas and Sag Awards.
Once the player reaches the end of a round (the end of a carpet), the gamer then gets to play mini-games. These bonus rounds feature having to make Leo crawl to his car from the infamous quaaludes scene from Wolf of Wall Street.
The player will have to act harder and move faster in order to win in this highly-entertaining and addicting game.
The actor, who has starred in films like Inception, Catch Me If You Can, The Great Gatsby and the highly-underrated movie The Beach, may finally win the biggest award in Hollywood during the 88th Academy Awards when it airs on Feb. 28.
The Revenant is also up for Best Picture, so we may see DiCaprio grace the stage more than once.
If things don't go as expected, at least Leo can peacefully bask in the knowledge that fans have been rooting for him to come out victorious. Help him get the Oscar by checking out Leo's Red Carpet Rampage here.
