We'll find out in exactly a week if the literature prize will be announced the 5th during Nobel week or on the 12th. I'm thinking the 5th. Also, any prediction for the other nobels?
Physics:

Kip Thorne and Rainer Weiss for gravitational waves.
Sumio Iijima for carbon nanotubes.
Hideo Hosono for iron-based superconductors.
Stephen Harris and Lene Hau for slow light.

Chemistry:

John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino for lithium batteries (the ones I want the most to win).
Emmanuelle Charpentier, Jennifer Doudna, and Feng Zhang for CRISPR (can be for medicine).
Franz-Ulrich Hartl and Arthur Horwich for chaperones.
Alec Jeffreys for DNA fingerprinting (can be for medicine).

Medicine:

Mary-Claire King and Michael Stratton for BRCA1 and BRCA2.
Kazutoshi Mori and Peter Walter for unfolded protein response.
Alexander Rudensky, Shimon Sakaguchi, and Ethan Shevach for regulatory T cells.
Akira Endo for statin drugs.

Peace (I don't really care about this award)
