Piers Morgan Interviews Oscars Pizza Delivery Man Edgar Martirosyan: I Didn't Know I Would Be Going on Stage
Cheesy 15 minutes of fame? After host Ellen DeGeneres brought pizza delivery man Edgar Martirosyan into the audience at the 2014 Oscars on Sunday, March 2, the owner of Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria got the opportunity to serve some of the biggest A-Listers in the business.
Doling out slices to the likes of Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Harrison Ford, and Kerry Washington, Martirosyan got to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Following his most memorable delivery ever, the Armenian business owner appeared on Piers Morgan Live to talk about the event with the British host. Revealing that he had no clue he'd be on the live telecast, Martirosyan gave some insight into his experience.
"I didn't know [I was going on stage]," he said. "I came out with the pizzas, and they told me just wait, the pizzas were for writers. And then Ellen came out. And Ellen said, 'I'm going to tell you to follow me.'"
He followed her on stage and eventually into the audience where he passed out the slices to hungry A-Listers.
"At that point I was just shocked. It was a really great moment," Martirosyan recalled. "When you say the American Dream, this is the real American Dream."
Morgan agreed, declaring it was, "a great moment for Armenians all around the world!"
Martirosyan is loving the attention DeGeneres' gag has provided, creating a Twitter account called @OscarpizzaEdgar and joking with Morgan that he should make an Oscars-themed pie for his takeout business.
