Oscars pizza delivery guy 'shocked' to be on TV

UNDATED (WHDH) -

The guy who delivered pizza to The Oscars is basking in some newfound fame.

Ellen Degeneres brought Edgar Martirosyan on stage in front of an audience of the world's biggest movie stars. He said he had no idea he'd be on national TV. He just thought he was bringing pizza to the writers.

“I was shocked. I came out with the pizzas, and they told me to just wait, that the pizza was for the writers. I was waiting and then Ellen came out. Ellen came out and told me I'm gonna tell you to follow me,” Martirosyan said.

It turns out, he's not just a delivery man. He co-owns the restaurant that provided the pizzas.

Ellen and her fellow stars collected tips in Pharrell's infamous large brown hat. She collected about $600 in the hat and then donated another $400 herself.
