Sitting at an awards show for nearly four hours can make celebs stomachs growl.

To fix that problem, Ellen DeGeneres had pizza delivered to the Oscars from Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria in Hollywood with pizza delivery guy Edgar passing out slices to a very hungry Jennifer Lawrence (she didn't even wait for a plate before diving in), Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and more.

In the midst of all those A-listers, Edgar managed to keep his cool and get those celebs fed...even though he had no idea he was delivering the pizza to the Oscars (!). "I said where are we going, a guy said follow me and then I'm on a stage. I was shocked," he said with a laugh when he appeared on Ellen Monday.

When he delivered pizza to Julia, he really had to try his best to keep it together. "She was like my woman in dreams," he continued. "I grew up in Moscow watching her movies."

After his pizza duties were done, Ellen walked around and collected tip money in Pharrell's infamous hat from Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o and other stars. So, how much did he rack up?

$600 dollars in the hat, plus $1,000 from Ellen. Not a bad day on the job.
