Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Oscar hopes are now virtually in your hands.

A new arcade style video game by The Line, titled Red Carpet Rampage, allows players to control the actor on his quest to win his first Oscar.

Using keyboard controls, users can urge DiCaprio to “act harder,” jump for other awards (like Emmy’s and Golden Globes), jump over paparazzi and outrace the competition – including Michael Fassbender from Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne from The Danish Girl.

The game also gives nods to his previous movies. On one level, digital DiCaprio can smash through an iceberg, in reference to Titanic. And in another round, he has to crawl to his car, la the infamous quaalude scene from Wolf of Wall Street.

While the game is not so easy to beat, DiCaprio’s chances at winning the elusive Oscar are better than ever this year.

After failing to score a win in any of his four previous nominations spanning over 20 years, DiCaprio is considered a front-runner for Best Lead Actor for his turn in The Revenant.

With best acting prizes at the Golden Globes, SAG awards and the BAFTAs already in the bag, DiCaprio will try his luck again at the Academy Awards on Feb. 28.
