The pizza delivery man who fed stars at the Oscars received a best tip award for a supporting player: $1,000 in cash handed over by ceremony host Ellen DeGeneres.

That included money collected from A-list celebrities who chowed down on the pies during the ceremony Sunday and from DeGeneres herself.

Edgar Martirosyan received the tip during a visit Monday to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

DeGeneres said she passed Pharrell Williams’ oversized hat at the Oscars and collected about $600, then contributed more.

The Big Mama’s & Papa’s delivery guy said he had already gotten a reward: serving Julia Roberts, whom he called the woman of his dreams.

DeGeneres received her own Oscars spiff. Her talk show’s producer, Telepictures Productions, says Monday’s episode was the highest-rated in the series’ 11-year history.
