Dylan accepted his Nobel diploma and medal on Saturday afternoon (April 1) at a hotel next door to the venue where he was performing that night.
At the time, the Swedish Academy said that the singer-songwriter informed them "he wishes he could receive the prize personally, but other commitments make it unfortunately impossible".
"It went very well indeed", he said, describing Dylan as "a very nice, kind man".
Only academy members and a member of Dylan's staff were in attendance.
Last year, it took Dylan two weeks to acknowledge he'd been announced as a Nobel Prize victor and when he finally did publicly react to the award, he said he wasn't sure he could make it to the ceremony where it would be presented.

Bob Dylan now has in his possession a Nobel Prize. The Academy's permanent secretary, Sara Danius, on the announcement of Dylan's award in October, said that Dylan "is a great poet in the English-speaking tradition", drawing parallels between his work and that of ancient Greek poets. Then we learned that he wouldn't attend the ceremony, but would send a speech to acknowledge the award.
