Webcast: 2011 Ig® Nobel Prize Ceremony
Here's recorded video of the entire 2011 Ig Nobel Prize ceremony:
What to expect (in this video of the live webcast)
Things started promptly at 7:30 pm (Boston time), more or less.
The first Ig Nobel Prize were announced about 15 minutes later.
In that first 15 minutes you will see:
- Tom Lehrer's "The Elements", the best song ever written about chemistry, tonight sung as a duet by a Nobel laureate and a medical professor
- The entrance of the new Ig Nobel Prize winners
- The entrance of the Official Audience Delegations
- The introduction of the Nobel laureates and other Ignitaries
- The traditional Ig Nobel "Welcome, Welcome" speech
Then — all in a rush — comes ALL THE GOOD STUFF: the announcement of the ten (10) Ig Nobel Prizes, the five (5) acts of the new mini-opera "Chemist in a Coffee Shop", the 24/7 Lectures, the Win-a-Date-With-a-Nobel-Laureate Contest, and lots of other things. Details can be found on this year's ceremony page.
The entire ceremony will last somewhere between 90 minutes and two hours.
