Linus Pauling was the only person who has ever won two (unshared) Nobel Prizes: Chemistry in 1954 and a Nobel Peace Prize in 1962. He is also known as "the vitamin C man".
The Nobels are the originals, of course. Not all awards are as noble as the Nobels. There are now hundreds of awards and awards ceremonies for all kinds of things.
