Oscars pizza delivery man says opportunity is like living the 'American dream'

By Gina DiFalco,

The pizza delivery man who brought Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres and a slew of A-list celebrities some pizza to munch on during Sunday night’s broadcast has been riding a wave of bliss ever since that night.

As he explained on an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, he had no idea he would be walking out on to that stage and seeing his favorite actors, including his favorite, Julia Roberts.

During an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, Edgar Martirosyan told Morgan “I'm thinking that's when you say American dream, this is really the American dream,” CNN reports.

Martirosyan owns the pizzeria Mama’s & Papa’s with his brother and the stores are reportedly thriving after his big moment.

While on DeGeneres’ show on Monday, the syndicated talk show host gave him a $1,000 tip to boot. She said she passed around Pharrell Wililams’ hat and got about $600 from the audience, then she added the rest to give him a total of $1,000.
