    the first one awarded/ to be awarded/to have been awarded

    Professor Steinman became the first one awarded/ to be awarded/to have been awarded the Nobel Prize after death in history.

    The given answer is 'to have been awarded'. But I would think all three are fine and 'to be awarded' is the best answer. Am I right?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: the first one awarded/ to be awarded/to have been awarded

    The first one is unnatural, but either of the last two are OK.
