Sooooo, people really brought it to this event, and that is a pleasant surprise! They’re attending something called The Breakthrough Prize, which I went and looked up, because I assumed it was breakthrough acting awards and ergo some new bullshit event thrown by some random group that was trying to elbow in on the ever-earlier-starting awards season. But no! ” The Breakthrough Prizes honor important, primarily recent, achievements in the categories of Fundamental Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics.” That’s an excellent thing to honor! I also learned that Lionel Richie performed and they call it “The Oscars of Science.” Here are all the winners, who are very smart! Smart people, good outfits: I approve.
