Two weeks after being named the winner of the Nobel prize for literature, Bob Dylan called to formally accept. The songwriter, who won the noted prize for his poetic legacy, caused quite the stir when it was revealed that he hadn't even acknowledged his win and had been ducking the committee, who were trying to reach out to him.

While some members of the academy were calling the move "impolite and arrogant", Bob finally put the discussion to an end by calling to accept the award and state that he is truly honoured.
