You may have heard that Bob Dylan was just awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, adding to the list off accolades he's received going way back to the 1960's.

The Nobel Committee announced that Dylan was chosen for "having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition."

Dylan has also won a Pulitzer Prize for literature, the Presidential  Medal of Freedom, eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award, and scores of other awards for his work as a songwriter and musician.

That list is so long, I thought it would be easier to list the awards Dylan has never won. In addition to an Emmy and a Tony, recognition has eluded him in these areas of accomplishment:

1. Railroader of the Year

2. Cy Young Award

3. Westminster Dog Show Best of Show

4. Mark Twain Prize for American Humor

5. Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year

6. Eagle Scout

7. World Dairy Expo World Forage Grand Champion

8. Honorary Harlem Globe Trotter

9. Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Award (nor has he been slimed, officially)

10. Cutest Kid in Miss Arndt's 2nd Grade
