Ellen Degeneres - Ellen DeGeneres ordered Oscars pizza

Picture:

Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizzas for the Oscars audience.

The talk show host - who presided over the four-hour academy awards ceremony last night (02.03.14) - wanted to ensure the guests didn't go hungry, so had the tasty treats delivered from Big Mama's & Papa's Pizzeria, and admitted she had ''lied'' to the man who brought the order as he thought he would just be leaving them backstage.

Instead, celebrities including Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Chiwetel Ejiofor - who requested an entire box - Harrison Ford, Kerry Washington and Julia Roberts happily tucked into the pies, while Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey acted as the man's assistants, with the former passing out plates and napkins and the latter helping distribute the food.

'Wolf of Wall Street' star Leonardo DiCaprio declined to eat, and though Jared Leto - who picked up Best Supporting Actor - took a slice, he claimed it was for his mother, who was his date for the evening.

Ellen asked Sandra Bullock to pay a tip, but the 'Gravity' actress insisted she had no money, so the host called on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein instead.

She said: ''Where's Harvey Weinstein? Harvey, no pressure - only a billion people are watching. Whatever you think is right.''

The celebrities donated cash for a tip into Pharrell Williams' infamous hat, which was later passed around, and it is believed the lucky delivery man was given around $300 for his high-profile job at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
