What soaks up a stomach full of bourbon and beer better than a slice of America’s favored delivery food? NOTHING, that’s what!
Pre-meditated or not, when Ellen makes the move to order pizza Live during the 86th Academy Awards, she not only ordered up a slice of Americana, but also tantalized the taste-buds of viewers. Few things make these, at times, larger than life Celebs more human and relatable than watching them gnaw on a cheesy slice of ‘za like the rest of us.
Bonus: Making Brad Pitt play the role of waiter, serving the likes of Meryl Streep and Harrison Ford.
What did NPH do? He had a his Oscar picks locked in a Briefcase under the eyeful watch (no, I don’t mean ‘watchful eye’) of Octavia Spencer… woah, don’t get too crazy now!
