George Bernard Shaw (1856)

Shaw was an Irish playwright and critic who revolutionized the Victorian stage, authoring more than 60 plays, including Man and Superman and Pygmalion, his comedic masterpiece. Nearly all of his works mix a vein of comedy with stern social commentary—on subjects including education, marriage, religion, government, and class privilege.

I wish we could turn back time and send this left-wing imbecile to Stalin's GULAG for a couple of decades.

Who are the only two people who have received an Oscar award and a Nobel Prize?

ONLY THE GREAT MASTER:

George Bernard Shaw won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925, and an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay (Pygmalion) in 1938.



Contrary to popular belief, Nobel Prize winner Al Gore did not win an Oscar. He did go on stage when An Inconvenient Truth won the Oscar for Best Documentary. But the prize goes to the director of the movie. Gore was not the director of the movie.
