Oscars night was not only the biggest night for Hollywood this year. The pizza delivery man who fed stars at the Oscars too had his share. He was awarded the best tip for a supporting player: Ceremony host Ellen DeGeneres handed the pizza delivery guy $1,000 in cash.



The tip included money collected from A-list celebrities who chowed down on the pies during the ceremony Sunday and from DeGeneres herself.

Edgar Martirosyan received the tip during a visit on Monday to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

DeGeneres said she passed Pharrell Williams' oversized hat at the Oscars and collected about $600, then contributed more.

The Big Mama's & Papa's delivery guy said he had already gotten a reward: serving Julia Roberts, whom he called the woman of his dreams.

DeGeneres received her own Oscars spiff. Her talk show's producer, Telepictures Productions, said that Monday's episode was the highest-rated in the series' 11-year history.
