The filmmaker who won the $2,500 high-definition TV set for delivering the shortest Oscar acceptance speech is giving the prize away. Michael Dudok de Wit who picked up an Academy Award Sunday for best animated short (Father and Daughter) tells TV Guide Online that he's donating the television to the Los Angeles children's home Hollygrove. "It just felt right," he admits. "I just won an Oscar for my short film I can't be happier than that. So I'm delighted that someone can make use of the television." Incidentally, Hollygrove is the orphanage that Marilyn Monroe once called home.
