George Bernard Shaw
George Bernard Shaw won the 1925 Nobel Prize for Literature. He remains the only person to win both an Oscar and a Nobel Prize. (American politician Al Gore won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and also starred in the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, but was not himself awarded an Oscar for the film)? George Bernard Shaw?s ascerbic style is sometimes described with the adjective Shavian? The original character of Pygmalion appears in a story told in Ovid?s Metamorphoses: Pygmalion was a sculptor who fell in love with his own sculpture of a beautiful woman.
