American comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres thrilled the Oscar audience with her rib cracking jokes and also fed them actual food.
After joking about having pizza delivered to the A-list ‘hungry’ crowd, a few segments later, the Oscar host surprised the audience by having several boxes brought on stage.
DeGeneres and a Los Angeles-based Big Mama's & Papa's delivery man walked into the audience and began handing out slices.
Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Kerry Washington all had a bite of the pizza.
Ellen DeGeneres didn’t stop there. She later got hold of Pharrell Williams’ famous hat to take contributions from some of Hollywood’s biggest names for the delivery man’s tip.
The Oscar host was able to collect money from Harvey Weinstein, Brad Pitt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kevin Spacey and John Travolta, while Lupita Nyong’o contributed lip balm, which DeGeneres pocketed for herself. See more photos below...
