Oscar Winner a Real Winner

Animator Michael Dudok De Wit, who won a high-definition TV set for giving the shortest acceptance speech at this year's Oscar ceremony, has donated the TV to Hollygrove, an L.A. center that is home to 68 disturbed and mistreated youths. "I'm delighted that Hollygrove can make use of it," De Wit said after presenting the gift on Tuesday. His film, "Father and Daughter," took the best animated short Oscar, and his speech came in at 18 seconds.
