Pizza delivery guy Edgar Martirosyan had a good Sunday night. He got to deliver pizza to the Oscars and received a $1,000 tip.

Edgar, the pizza owner, got the call to deliver pizza to Hollywood's Dolby Theatre for some writers during Sunday night's Academy Awards.

According to an article on Xinhua.com, he was shocked when host DeGeneres led him to the stage in front of Hollywood actors and 43 million viewers at home.

Best Supporting Actor Jared Leto, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and the Jennifer Lawrence all indulged on a piece of the pie, but none of the multi-millionaire nominees in the audience seemed to have any cash on them for a well-deserved tip.

Luckily, when Edgar was invited back onstage for an interview on The Ellen Show Monday, Ellen DeGeneres surprised Edgar with a 1,000 dollar tip for delivering pizza to the Oscars.
