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.

Truth    

Why did Will Smith present Best Picture? He doesn't have an Oscar for anything. He doesn't even have any decent movies lately.

Pizza delivery was staged. Just like the selfie photo tweet. They took the photo earlier in rehearsal . (Professionally). Then re enacted the scene again. Staging it that it was some spontaneous "selfie". They screwed up. I caught their slip up with the live viewing vs the photo itself she tweeted. What a joke!

The pizza huh is a loser anyway, who cares, they don't even deserve a tip, the pizza sucks anyway. And to top it off, Palestinians don't make good pizza, it's made by Italians like what Chicago has, learn something west coast idiots. Who cares what this delivery guy got. If you got most of these stars opinions about the pizza, they all would say it sucked so bad.

I just can't believe he's complaining. He was on the %&$^# Oscars. And beside that, Ellen will have him on the show and give him a ton of cash. Screw his entitled attitude.

Ellen should have the kid on her show and give him a car and a four-year college scholarship.

25.00 dollars for a large pizza? Who pays that price unless you are eating at an expensive Italian restaurant. This was not an expensive restaurant.

Ellen tipped him over $1,000 on her show. Like she would miss an opportunity for additional PR. She is a smart woman.
