Who Was The Pizza Delivery Man At The Oscars?
It was one of the most memorable moments in Oscar history when host Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza for the world's most glamorous movie stars. She began handing out slices live during the big telecast.
Some may have wondered if that was an actor. Well, INSIDE EDITION can tell you he's the real deal.
His name is Edgar Martirosyan, and he is owner of Big Mama's and Papa's, a mom & pop pizza parlor less than a mile away from the Dolby Theatre where the Academy Awards show was unfolding.
It's a small pizza parlor on Sunset Boulevard with just two pizza ovens, but once they delivered to the Oscars there was a line at the door and the phones were ringing off the hook.
Edgar told INSIDE EDITION, “I didn't imagine that I am going to the Oscars to deliver pizzas for the stars.”

The pizza guy took a rush order for 20 pies, which he delivered himself, and was stunned as Ellen DeGeneres led him on stage and into Oscar history.
He couldn't believe his eyes as Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts took slices, while Brad Pitt handed out paper plates and napkins. Jared Leto gave a slice to his mom.
INSIDE EDITION’s Victoria Recano asked, “What was that moment like giving pizza to Julia Roberts?”
He said, “That was one of my most favorite actresses and I wouldn't have imagined it!”
The stars loved their pizzas. Brad Pitt ate a slice right in his seat beside Angelina Jolie. Jamie Foxx's daughter, Corinne, tweeted a picture of her and her dad. Kerry Washington enjoyed hers backstage.
Martirosyan is an immigrant from Armenia and is enjoying the big dream. Recano had to try a slice for herself, just like the ones they scarfed down at the Oscars.
