Ellen DeGeneres helped a pizza man raise $1000 at the Oscars. The co-owner of Los Angeles pizza parlour Big Mama’s & Papa’s Edgar Martirosyan, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to talk about his surprise visit to the Oscars.

He claimed he was told he was going to supply pizza to some Hollywood writers but ended up being led to the Oscar stage by Ellen. He then gave Pizza's to Hollywood top dogs including his favorite actress Julia Roberts.

Ellen DeGeneres then went round collecting tips for him with Pharrell's famous mountain hat that was sold yesterday for $44,100. Ellen was able to raise $600 and added $400 of her own.
