Oscar’s Pizza Delivery Man Receives $1,000 Tip
Apparently when you deliver pizza to Hollywood's biggest stars on Hollywood's biggest night, you receive a generous tip.
At the 86th annual Academy Awards, Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza for some of Hollywood's biggest names. It was delivered by Edgar Martirosyan of The Big Mama's & Papa's. After handing out pizza to people like Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and Brad Pitt, ad subsequently being the star of the night, Martirosyan returned to his job and normal life.
The next day he was a guest on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
During the interview, Ellen tipped Martirosyan $1,000 for his pizza delivery. Ellen had passed around Pharrell WIlliams' hat to collect some cash. She racked up $600 from the Oscar's guests and chipped in $400 of her own.
Martirosyan said he had already gotten his reward, which was serving pizza to Julia Roberts, whom he called the woman of his dreams. Ellen got a reward of her own. Telepictures Productions said her show on Monday was the highest-rated in the series 11-year history.
Everyone wins when there's pizza involved.
