And the biggest tip for delivering a pizza to the Oscars goes to ... Edgar Martirosyan?

Martirosyan, the franchisee for the Big Mama's & Papa's Pizzeria Hollywood, is the man who now-famously delivered the pizzas during last night's Academy Awards show -- and he took home a $1,000 tip for his work.

During Edgar's appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Martirosyan gave details on his Oscars pizza surprise. He told Ellen DeGeneres that he thought he would only be giving the pizzas to writers and producers sitting backstage.

"[Ellen] said just follow me, and I'm going and I'm on a stage. I was in shock."
