Trivia Answer: Nobel Prize and Oscar

The only man with both an Oscar and a Nobel Prize is Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, who won the Nobel in literature in 1925, and the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay in 1938, for adapting his own play Pygmalion into a movie. Pygmalion would also later be adapted into a musical by the name of My Fair Lady, which won Best Picture at the 1964 Oscars.
