10. The REAL Noble prize winners!

Economics wasn't even one of the original categories, and the Peace Prize is inherently too political to be given much objective value (I mean some of the people that received it - Kissinger? Arafat? And as much as I like Obama, it was barely into his presidency that he got one).

Of course, even in the sciences, there are plenty of disputes regarding the merit of the winner, but it's more difficult for the committee to justify giving it someone that didn't accomplish much...
