Here, look busy at work with Leo's Red Carpet Rampage
It's Wednesday afternoon and everyone is steeped in mid-week malaise, so here in the Times features department we're winding down the day with this helpful arcade style game. The sound of rapidfire keyboard action is deafening. Entertainment news editor Caitlin O'Conner just shouted, "GOLDEN GLOBE COMBO!!!!"
It's Leo's Red Carpet Rampage, from London animation collective The Line. Leonardo DiCaprio, in his quest for the Academy Award, has to run down the red carpet and snag awards, racing everyone from Lady Gaga to Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs. There are bonus challenges, such as getting Leo to "act harder," and finding the black nominee in a lineup of #oscarssowhite (I couldn't, of course).
"Now I have to beat Eddie Redmayne as The Danish Girl!" Caitlin just proclaimed. Her fingers are flying.
Try your hand. My score? 23 Golden Globes, 30 Emmys, 0 MTV Movie Awards, 3 Baftas and 30 Sag Awards. No Oscar, though! BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME, HUGH GLASS.
