Comic and talk-show star Ellen DeGeneres, who returned Sunday to host the Academy Awards function for the second time, had a special something for the guests -- pizza.
DeGeneres got a delivery boy from backstage to hand out pizza to a crowd full of stars. And, according to E! News, “12 Years a Slave” star Chiwetel Ejiofor wanted an entire box of pizza, while Julia Roberts shouted out for more cheese. Brad Pitt passed out plates and napkins to the crowd, while “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey “took pizza to hand out in the cheaper seats.”
According to reports, Leonardo DiCaprio declined the pizza that he was offered while Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto and Harrison Ford enjoyed their slices.

DeGeneres called out for Sandra Bullock to pay the delivery boy his tip, but she did not have any money on her.
"Where's Harvey Weinstein?" DeGeneres asked the crowd, and when she located him she said: “No pressure, only a billion people are watching, whatever you feel is right.”
