The shortlist contains 329 out of which 234 are individuals and 95 are organizations. However, the Committee has restricted the information about the nominations. And this is something that makes the job of bookmakers much harder! But it also makes the waiting a lot more exciting. Anyhow, some online sportsbook sites in the US, like Unibet already came up with some odds for the possible winners of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2021.
Nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize
According to the official site, the “nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize may be submitted by any person who meets the nomination criteria. A letter of invitation to submit is not required. The names of the nominees and other information about the nominations cannot be revealed until 50 years later.” So, we could only find out about this year’s 329 candidates in 2071 – the soonest. Until then – if you did not place your money on the winner – you can be wondering if you were just almost right! It is the Norwegian Nobel Committee that selects the Laureates. The Committee has five members appointed by the Storting (Norwegian parliament). It means the decision is all in their hands. All the online gambling news sites in the US can only be guessing the odds on the Nobel Peace Prize 2021.
Take your time before a bet
The next important date for gamblers – and Nobel enthusiasts – is October 9th. At the beginning of October ”the Nobel Committee chooses the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates through a majority vote. The decision is final and without appeal.” The Nobel Laureates receive their prizes on 10th December. The Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is in Oslo, Norway. It is not in Stockholm, Sweden, where the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, and the Economics Prize are awarded.
