When Edgar Martirosyan was told that he was going to be delivering to the writers backstage at the Dolby Theatre on Oscars night, he didn't think that Ellen DeGeneres would take it to the next step.

During an intermission at the 86th Academy Awards last Sunday, the Oscar emcee brought Edgar – in cap, apron, pizza boxes and all, up onstage.

This was followed by him actually handing out pizza to the hungry stars, including Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto (who took a piece for his mum), Meryl Streep, and a very pregnant Kerry Washington, all of whom dug in in delight.

"You said just follow me, and I'm going and I'm on a stage. I was just shocked," he said on The Ellen Show last night, clearly still not over his surprise encounter with Hollywood's biggest names.

Boy, business must be booming for Big Mama's & Papa's Pizzeria in Los Angeles. And the best part? Ellen actually gave Edgar the $600 tip she had collected in Pharrell's hat, and topped it up with another $400.
