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.

Only the mind numb could tolerate watching this awards show, it was really bad. The Pizza Guy was the only real entertainment the entire night.

The title of your piece is very misleading. At no point does the pizza guy say that. He doesn't say anything, in fact. Sounds like he knows how to hande paparazzi.

Ellen is awesome. Wish I could have seen someone eat a bite. Snobs don't want to mess the dress. I would have done it just for fun's sake. Who cares!

I'm confused. Did he get the $300 or not?

Truth    

When you doing posts about the pizza guy, it just shows how boring the show was. And how lame Ellen was. So she will have the guy on her show and give him a car or something. Just more publicity for her.

Wow. There really nothing more interesting going on in the thirty mile zone? TMZ just can't get over this pizza story.

I don't care how good the pizza tastes. For $75.00 for 3 pizzas, they better be lined with gold and silver.

Do your job, TMZ. Did the kid receive, or not receive, the tip? Was the kid part of the show, and was the pizza delivery preplanned, or was he able to get through three levels of security and enter the theater in 30 minutes or less?
