LIGO will never receive a Nobel Prize, period.

Based on one simple, single, solitary assumption:

The Nobel Prize will not shoot itself in the foot again,

an assumption I think is reasonable, here is my prediction in perpetuity:

LIGO discoveries will never receive a Nobel Prize.

This also means that

The Kavli Prize, the Gruber Prize, the Shaw Prize and the Breakthrough Prize are left holding the bag.
