Last night, 2 February, the 2014 Oscar Awards took place at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood Los Angeles and as was the case in 2007 Ellen De Generes successfully and memorably hosted this event for the second time since her debut.
The much-loved, hilarious, high-energy 56 year old comedian and talk show host, described in an article by David Hinckley in the New York Daily as; a safe host in the style of Bob Hope and Johnny Carson though not as funny is a promise keeper too!
Ellen promised that she would make sure that the Oscar nominees got pizza to help keep body and soul nourished through the lengthy proceedings on Oscar night. True to her promise and to the delight and amusement of all the pretty people in the front rows an actual pizza delivery guy from Big Mams & Papas Pizzeria delivered a stack of warm pizzas.
While Leonardo Di Caprio declined a slice as it was handed amongst the A-listers by Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey shared the spoils with those in the cheaper seats and Julian Roberts chimed she wanted cheese! Seasoned actors Meryl Streep and Harrison Ford have long stopped caring about eating on camera and dug in.
In what is now being described as the biggest celebrity pizza party ever Ellen ensured that Hollywood’s darling, Jennifer Lawrence and pregnant Kerry Washington weren’t skipped as the pizza was passed around. Saying She [Washington] NEEDS some!
