Yo-yo Ma & the Oslo String Quartet are really something... very good to listen...

Polfoto 10-12-2005 An overview of the City Hall where the The Nobel Peace Prize award for 2005 will be awarded in Oslo, Saturday Dec. 10, 2005. Nuclear watchdog agency leader Mohamed ElBaradei warned that humanity faces a choice between nuclear weapons and survival when he was accepting the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize on Saturday. ElBaradei shared the coveted award with the International Atomic Energy Agency for their drive to control the spread of nuclear weapons, especially to terrorists. The IAEA was represented by the Chairman of the Board of Governors, Yukiya Amano.

Bob Geldoff was taking photos of the venue before the ceremony starte Its a very elegant room I think, they have decorated with 6000 carnations and 3000 orchids in tones of yellow and gold
ElBaradei started his speech by congratulating the royal family with the birth of Prince Sverre Magnus

Nettavisen and VG

What a wonderful speech Mr El Baradei gave! His family was very moved, and so was I, it was such a touching speech which I hope made many people think. And what a sweet gesture to congratulate the Royal Family to the birth of Prince Sverre Magnus. I was also quite impressed with how well Mr El Baradei pronounced "Sverre Magnus", not bad at all!

thanks, GrandDuchess for the link.
unfortunately, they didn't write the part where ElBaradei congratulate the King on Prince Sverre's birth at the begining of his speech.
Did anyone catch that? what did he say exactly?
oh yeah, will the video/webcast of the ceremony & speech available later?

Well I don't remember exactly what he said, but it was something like "let me begin by congratulating the Royal Family to the birth of Prince Sverre Magnus. We all wish him a long an healthy (or was it happy...) life"... Something in the rounds of that.

The ceremony will be available by video on demand later. You can watch it here.

yeah, you're right! i just watched ElBaradei speak on CNN. He said, "Let me start by first congratulating the Royal Family on the birth of Sverre Magnus. We all wish him a long and happy life".

it was quite different how he pronounced Sverre than i imagined it. but, i guess he pronounced it right. I thought the "sv" in sverre is spoken quite fast and it was a low "e" at the end, but it somehow sounds like how you pronounced "severus snape from harry potter" but without the "us" on severus.

a beautiful & sweet tradition...

Polfoto 10-12-2005 People gather for a candlelight vigil as Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mohamed ElBaradei and Yukiya Amano, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the IAEA, wave from the balcony, unseen, of the Grand Hotel in Oslo, Norway Saturday Dec.10, 2005. ElBaradei shared the award with his International Atomic Energy Agency for efforts to control the spread of nuclear weapons.



i have a question though. do people just come and lit a torch outside the hotel or is the event actually organized?

I'm a terribly shallow person I know, but without MetteMarit or Martha Louise there I can't find much enjoyment in the Oslo Nobel ceremony. the one in Stockholm offered much more to gladden the heart of a royalty watcher.

I watched it fairly closely and I think it was "Let me start by congratulating the Royal Family for the birth of Sverre Magnus. We all wish him a long, happy and healthy life.

I thought the ceremony was very elegant and peaceful - exactly what a Nobel Peace Prize ceremony should be like. Mohamed ElBaradei and the IAEA deserved this prize.

yes, you're probably right, layla!
anyway, it was a sweet gesture from ElBaradei... and i'm sure many norwegians would appreciate it...

I agree.. the peace prize ceremony is a solemn, sweet, dedicated, and elegant... definitely represent the award.. "peace" :) :)

too bad there's no MM & ML... :(
