The Oscars Pizza Delivery Guy Talks About His 15 Minutes Of Fame

Posted: Updated:

All night delivery guys were running out of Mamas and Papas Pizzeria faster than you can say "What happened on the Oscars last night?" 

Glad you asked. Oh, Oscar Night the famous were out in their expensive gowns and penguin-like tuxes. And, cool movies got Oscar statuettes. But, Edgar Martirosyan got a mega-plug! 

He says he got a call from the Oscars to bring pizzas from his Sunset Blvd. pizzeria. He thought they were going to people who were working for the show. Says the 30 year old, "they told me I was going to be delivering pizzas for writers and when I got there (host) Ellen (DeGeneres) came out and told me 'follow me' and then when I was going I realized I was on the stage."

So, he gets out on stage and, all of a sudden Ellen is handing out plates and his pizzas are going to hollywood alist stars like Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and Brad Pitt. He was shocked and says he "didn't know what was going on."

He says he was shocked. Who wouldn't be? After all the dishing out of pizzas to Hollywood A-Listers he's somewhat of a celebrity himself.

Now, he's really well known and his regular customers are glad he's had a moment in the spotlight.
