Academy Awards Pizza Guy

Cheered By Co-Workers

Missed Out On Fat Tip

3/3/2014 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

030214_oscar_pizza_boy_launchThe guy who delivered pizza to celebs like Jared Leto, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts during the Academy Awards returned to work with a hero's welcome ... but the burning question -- will he get that big fat tip?

We're not sure what his name is, but the guy who delivered pizzas during the show is clearly gonna get employee of the month ... you gotta see the reaction he gets from his co-workers.

The delivery guy didn't take his own ride to the event -- looks like Oscar producers sent a fancy SUV -- but when we tried asking him how it all went down ... he wouldn't say much.

Here's the kicker ... all this happened before Ellen got celebs like Harvey Weinstein and Brad Pitt to tip him around $300 for the pizza inside Pharrell's hat. So, the question is -- will the delivery guy get what's coming to him?

Don't worry ... we plan to ask him soon. Hopefully our camera guy gets an answer.

When J TRavolta leaves that kind of tip, he'll want a "massage".

I bet Ellen will have this pizza guy on her show and also do something for him plus the tip.

He'll get a new vehicle on Ellen's show to deliver pizzas in I bet.

and Brad Pitt only at first put one 20 dollar bill in

If I made the kind of money these actors/actresses did, I'd be putting in several 100 dollar bills for the pizza guy.

People actually still watch the Oscars where Hollywood has one big circle jerk? Time is better spent watching The Walking Dead and House of Cards

He actually owns the location on Sunset so hopefully he is just basking in the free advertisement.
