Ellen Catches Up with Jared Leto, Lupita Nyong'o, and the Pizza Guy in Post-Oscars Show: VIDEO


A day after her hosting gig at the Oscars, Ellen DeGeneres welcomed winners Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o to her show to rehash last night's pizza-eating, selfie-taking telecast, which drew 43 million viewers, and was the most-watched in the last 10 years.

Leto says he still hasn't watched Dallas Buyers Club and doesn't have plans to.

Ellen also welcomed Edgar the pizza guy and gave him a big tip for delivering all those slices.

  1. Am I the only one who thought that Lupita's brother showed a certain lack of class jumping into that photo? He crowded his own sister to the back of the frame, let alone how he blocked Angelina Jolie. Not cool, sir.

  2. Yeah who was he again??...

  3. Oh, please, it was an impromptu moment so he decided to go with it. He is there with his sister in the same row and he played along. The idea that he has to bow down to Angelina Jolie and that crowd is just bs. She makes movies (and some pretty bad ones at that) and her only real claim to "fame" is marrying Brad Pitt. Let's not start deifying hollywood stars just yet folks. Not everyone has an inferiority complex. Good for him.

  4. Her brother is a freshman, probably 18 years old, and engaged himself impulsively, but with charm. We all know what Angelina Jolie looks like, and I am quite certain his sister is used to his stealing the show.
    I think he stands for every young person and young-at-heart who has ever regretted not taking an action simply for the sheer joy of it. Bravo to his chutzpah and dang cute smile.

  5. No, Ellen invited him.

  6. Ellen was a disappointment as Oscars host. Her jokes were flat. She's a media lesbian who's constantly promoting herself.

  7. I thought he was a Hollywood type that just wound up in the pic, who cares? But I thought the selfie/pizza stuff was sort of alienating.

  8. Ellen was amazing.

  9. ...and I still want pizza.

  10. It gave me a kind of an off-putting, insular "This is our world, you only get to watch" feeling, the selfie, the pizza... seemed like they could have just gone ahead and shut the TV cameras off and gone ahead without us. I wouldn't have minded, I headed off to bed anyway.

    It's Hollywood, what more can you say? :-)

  11. I am not young and impulsive, but if presented the opportunity I would jump into the picture just to be known forever as, "who's that guy?"

  12. We heard you the first time DBACK. Who cares? Get over it. First world problems.

  13. "Ellen was a disappointment as Oscars host. Her jokes were flat..."

    Such a disappointment, the show was only the biggest entertainment event in 10yrs. only 43 million people think you are wrong.

    It is AMAZING to see an open LGBT individual so universally accepted and even loved. She keeps moving people forward in accepting LGBT.

  14. I thought the whole show was great.

    1) Ellen did a great job hosting, lowering the nervousness factor with a casual, fun performance. She's so famous we tend to forget that she's been an absolute trailblazer for the LGBT community, she's an out married lesbian, and she's hosting the biggest show in the world. That is a BIG deal.

    2) Acceptance speeches were honest, moving and occasionally clever, like Bobby Lopez for "Let It Go," or show stopping, like Darlene Love breaking into gospel.

    3) The selfie bit and the pizza bit were great, making the stars seem much more real and approachable. They were all great sports and went with the jokes. They were all probably hungry and actually wanted a slice. It's genius the the pizza delivery guy wasn't in on it.

    4) All of the song performances, as opposed to other years, were good. Travolta introducing Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeen" was a hilarious mistake and has already exploded online.

    5) The only weird moment was Kim Novak, whose facelift was a shock, but she's 81, a cancer survivor and did "Vertigo," so all is forgiven.

    6) It's interesting to see how some performers, when they debut, are instantly welcomed onto the A-list, and that's what happened to Lupita Nyong'o.

    7) Jared Leto, in addition to being a staggeringly beautiful man, also seems like a great guy, and he dresses better than Adam Lambert. His speech mentioning those lost to AIDS was great.

  15. Ellen was great and has been great for not only LGBT but for all. Thought the Liza "sir" comment was a miss. But Ellen deserves a pass, she didn't intend to hurt anyone.

  16. Why is that cisgender, transmisogynist Jared Leto being honoured for acting in a movie? Let's attack him violently.
    The T Community.

  17. kind of weird when the pizza guy has more attitude than Oscar winners, kind of puts it in perspective, as for Nyongo bro, he's 20.

  18. As with anything, you can please some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time.
    I thought the show was great; hugely entertaining!

  20. Isn't it amazing that 43 million viewers is today considered a braggable number, in a nation of 320+ million. Where's the other 957 million viewers to make up that phony billion they're always talking about?

    Posted by: JD | Mar 4, 2014 6:30:29 AM

  21. I am kind of amazed how some of you are analyzing a completely fun spontaneous moment to death and trying to find people who had ulterior motives for getting in the picture. Petty.

    Posted by: Nelson | Mar 4, 2014 7:07:35 AM

  22. Zero analyzing on my part, just an honest reaction to what looked like a big "it's all about us" party. Self-aggrandizing for an audience held captive by the insatiable need to know "WHO WON????" over and over again.

    I'd rather just watch their movies, thanks.

    Posted by: johnny | Mar 4, 2014 7:45:05 AM

  23. Great, fun show and host. Ellen kept it consistently entertaining. Glad it was the most watched telecast in 10 years. I'm sure the producers of the show will invite her back soon.

    Posted by: SpaceCadet | Mar 4, 2014 10:17:44 AM

  24. JIM, is that the first time you've seen someone debut into a darling? Really??? What like Jennifer Lawrence with Winters Game? at 21? Lupita is 31 and has worked in the industry for years...

    What about Julia Roberts back on the day with Pretty Woman? Also 21??

    Whatever. People don't even realise their f*cked up hidden agenda's. It's so subconscious and innate.

    I just will not stop finding it funny that people are so aghast, shocked and vilified that a THIRTY ONE year old woman who has just graduated from one of the BEST drama schools in the world AND has spent years working behind the scenes is being lauded.

    Out of all the Hollywood fakery, she's a breath of fresh air as we actually have proof of her GD past. SMDH.

  25. Oh for Christ's sake Dback--pull the stick out of your ass.

    CD in DC-I didn't get any attitude from the pizza guy. What are you talking about?
