Benedict Cumberbatch may not be taking home an Oscar, but he’s a winner in our book thanks to this epic photobomb.

Ellen was getting hungry so she ordered pizza for the group.

When a real delivery man brought three pizzas she passed them out the A-list crowd. Harvey Weinstein tossed in some money for a tip.
