Edgar Martirosyan, the pizza delivery guy from Sunday's Oscars, received the biggest tip of his career after appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', the day after the award ceremony.
Ellen Degeneres is fresh off emceeing the 86th annual Academy-Awards.
But when the 56 year-old returned to her usual hosting duties on her daytime talk-show, she brought some of the ceremony's winners with her...including the pizza delivery guy!

And not to forget, the unsuspecting Russian native was all of a sudden being watched by millions of viewers around the world.
Mr. Martirosyan appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Monday (March 3rd), to discuss is moment in the spotlight.
"You thought you were going to bring them (the pizzas) to some producers? What did they tell you?" asked DeGeneres.
"Yeah, they told me I'm just going to deliver for writers and then when I was there they just told me wait here and you came out," said Martirosyan. "You said I'm going to let you know when to follow me and I was like, we're we going, you said just follow me and I'm going then I'm on a stage. I was in shock."
"So you left before, I wanted to get you a tip and I passed Pharrell's hat around and I ended up getting around $600 something like that," said DeGeneres. "Here is some more.here is $1000. You have a total of $1000."
Edgar also spoke with the NY Daily News on Monday, and told the newspaper since featuring in the Oscars, business has dramatically improved.
"It's good," he said, referring to his pizzaria's new found fame. "A lot of calls. It's busy, it's good."
