Leonardo DiCaprio Needs Your Help Getting His First Oscar in This Free Online Game
Leonardo DiCaprio -- how many times does the man have to cry and drool and crawl through the mud to finally get his Oscar?
The very talented (and ever-snubbed) actor is up for another Academy Award, this time for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, and if you're like a lot of Leo fans, you might be thinking that the Academy just needs to give the poor guy his award already.
Well, an arcade-style game has surfaced from The Line, a BAFTA nominated animation collective based in London, that allows you to guide Leo through paparazzi, icebergs, and even Lady Gaga. It's called Leo's Red Carpet Rampage and it's free to play online.
Here's a video of the gameplay:
It might appear that Leonardo DiCaprio has been snubbed countless times, but he's only actually been nominated for an Academy Award 5 times all together, his first for What's Eating Gilbert Grape in 1993.
