The Oscar pizza guy was a real pizza delivery person who was shocked and amazed when he was brought on stage at the 2014 Oscars by Ellen DeGeneres. One of the questions circling the social media sites since Sunday night’s Oscars is how much money was the Oscar pizza guy given for a tip, and that’s finally been revealed.

According to MSN News on March 3, Edgar Martirosyan was given the $600 that Ellen collected from the rich and famous audience and she threw in $400 of her own money to make the pizza guys tip a whopping $1,000. Martirosyan made Oscar history as the first pizza delivery guy to show up on stage.

He was told he was delivering pizza for the writers, he had no idea what Ellen was about to do. When Martirosyan arrived at the Oscars, he was told to “wait here” and then Ellen came out and said “follow me.” The rest is history because this is when he followed her onto the stage for Ellen’s pizza giveaway.

Martirosyan was bowled over by the entire night, but nothing made him happier than seeing the woman of his dreams, Julia Roberts. You have to admit, when Ellen DeGeneres puts on a show, she really puts on a show!
