Bob Dylan wins Nobel Prize, skips award ceremony

STOCKHOLM, Se. - The Nobel Prizes for Physics, Chemistry, Literature and Economic sciences were given at a royal ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday.

Despite being named the Nobel Laureate of Literature, Musical Artist Bob Dylan did not attend the ceremony. The Swedish Academy, responsible for awarding the prize, had difficulty in getting Bob Dylan to respond to their invitations to the ceremony.

The media-shy Dylan was instead represented by rock singer Patty Smith.

The Nobel Prizes have been awarded on December 10th every year since 1901. The date marks the death of dynamite inventor Alfred Nobel in 1896.
