Pizza Delivery Man at Last Night's Oscars Was Real


This pizza delivery man must have been pretty startled when he delivered pizza to Ellen DeGeneres and the rest of the Oscars audience.

A-list celebrities get hungry too! Ellen DeGeneres livened things up at last night’s Academy Awards when she ordered pizzas for the star-studded audience. As it turns out, the pizza delivery guy was real and from a local nearby pizza franchise called Big Mama’s and Papa’s Pizza, according to ABC.

“Ellen’s talk show has picked up quite a few pizzas from us,” a Big Mama’s & Papa’s representative told ABC News. “They had us make a giant pizza before for one of her shows."

Ellen did only order three pies, so some actors, like the pregnant Kerry Washington, were out of luck. Not to worry, though, the baby bump-sporting Scandal star did Instagram a photo of herself after the show eating a fresh slice.

Big Mama's & Papa's pizzeria may not have made it on our list of the 101 Best Pizzas in America, but several other Los Angeles pizzas did.

The big culinary moment of the night, had to be Wolfgang Puck’s lavish after-party dinner for 1,500 VIP guests, according to, including a display of edible chocolate Oscar statuettes coated in 24K gold dust, and a menu of comfort food like macaroni and cheese, chicken pot pie, and baked potatoes, along with a thousand pounds of fish (no joke!) that were ordered for guests.
