Ellen DeGeneres Orders Pizza to the Oscars, Here’s Everything You Need to Know About That

One thing is for sure, Ellen DeGeneres sure knows how to host a show.

Midway through the 2014 Oscars ceremony, the charismatic host nonchalantly began soliciting interest from the star-studded audience about hunger and her future plans to order a pizza.

The unanimous level of interest from her fellow tinsel town friends in the first few rows led Ellen to place an order from Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria, a local Los Angeles-based pizza franchise not far from where the show was hosted.

According to ABC News, the starstruck delivery boy is an actual employee for the shop — not an actor. The bit continued, with Ellen explaining to the delivery boy that actress “Kerry Washington is pregnant, she needs some.

Sure enough, here is Kerry Washington chowing down:

Big Mama’s & Papa’s staff told ABC News that “Ellen’s talk show has picked up quite a few pizzas from us.”

The shop is known for their giant pizza:

Additional play-by-play of who ate some, who didn’t, and who pitched in to pay for some:

  • 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor was down for an entire box
  • Brad Pitt helped pass out plates and napkins, but then tore into a slice himself
  • Leonardo DiCaprio looked too damn nervous to enjoy a slice, he politely declined (he pitched in a few bucks though)
  • Off-duty Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) was down for an entire box as well…but he’s awesome, so he passed it down:

  • Julia Roberts wanted cheese pizza
  • Jared Leto was pretty excited…but he was a gentleman and gave the slice to his mom:

  • Harrison Ford gave zero shits about being a cool guy and immediately stood up for a slice when offered
  • Meryl Streep proves she’s the sexiest lady at her age, and definitely hopped on a slice
  • Jennifer Lawrence enjoyed a slice, because, obviously
  • Dax Shepard apparently gnawing on a slice:

  • And Corinne Fox is seen below chowing down with the likes of Channing Tatum:

And finally, surely the pizza shop was happy with the exposure. Here’s a shot from their Facebook page:

TMZ was quick on the case, with a videographer staking out the pizza shop as soon the delivery boy made it back. They pried him questions about who fronted the bill, here’s the response:



Elie is a product of Orange County, CA. In early 2012, his dentist diagnosed him with 8 different cavities, three of which on the same tooth, as a result of his 23-year Sour Patch Kid addiction.
