Oscar Pizza Guy

They Greased the Pizza

But NOT My Hand!

The guy who delivered pizzas to the Oscars had no idea Ellen collected hundreds of bucks earmarked for his tip.

Edgar was all business after the ceremony when we caught up with him as he went inside Big Mama's & Papa's ... but it's pretty clear he had no idea Ellen passed Pharrell's hat around and scored around $300. When you deduct $75 for the 3 pies, it leaves an awesome tip.

But Edgar was mum ... somehow learning how to give photogs the brush-off with NO experience.

Sadly ... Edgar was more entertaining than most of the acceptance speeches.

THEY BOUGHT THREE PIZZAS AND WENT AND PICKED HIM UP. HOW MUCH TIP WOULD YOU EXPECT?!? It was a gimmick that everyone was in on and prob got their money back. Plus the delivery place got Bella publicity out of it. SN: Lupita is a disgrace to our race for being the cheapest one there.

Does TMZ ever write an accurate headline? Neither of the articles you have, nor the video say the guy got no tip. 90% of the time I bother to check one of your outrageous headlines, it's wrong. Great job Harvey.
