Little known fact: Leonardo DiCaprio has never won an Oscar. The 41-year-old actor/friend to the Earth/friend to the Pope has joined the five-time nominee club having been nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for: What's Eating Gilbert Grape? (1994); The Aviator (2004); Blood Diamond (2006) (Remember that?); The Wolf of Wall Street (2013); The Revenant (2015). DiCaprio's storied Oscar struggle has been mentioned and examined on this site too many times to count, but all of his work
work work for The Revenant—not limited to sleeping naked inside of an animal carcass—might finally land him an Oscar this year. If not, he's still got a chance in Leo's Red Carpet Rampage, a video game about Leonardo DiCaprio winning an Oscar.
The video game involves DiCaprio literally chasing after an Oscar, which as we just went over is DiCaprio's only other lifelong activity besides chasing models. The hilariously awesome video game cuts to the chase from the beginning with DiCaprio telling players: "Hi I'm Leonardo DiCaprio and I really need to win the Oscar." Players have to help DiCaprio run after the Oscar facing challenges including pesky paparazzi, an iceberg (naturally), and a slew of leading men.
The timely video game features Matt Damon (The Martian) and Bryan Cranston (Trumbo) making appearances as DiCaprio runs trying to collect bonuses along the way such as a SAG Awards bonus to reach the Oscar. Without spoiling too much there's even a "spot the black nominee" bit, which takes aim at the Oscars' diversity issue.
I haven't finished the game, but there's gotta be a vape power-up in there somewhere.
