** Most notably, there ''isn't'' a Nobel Prize for Mathematics, although the urban legend of Nobel being cuckolded by a mathematician is false. The top prize in Math are the Abel Prize (also presented by the King of Norway) and the Fields Medal (presented by the International Mathematical Union).

** Most notably, there ''isn't'' a Nobel Prize for Mathematics, although the urban legend of Nobel being cuckolded by a mathematician is false.false (Nobel wanted his prizes to reward concrete scientific and political advances that produces a clear benefit for mankind, and he considered mathematics to be too theoretical for that requirement--Nobel probably would not have approved of awarding of so many Physics prizes to theoretical physicists). The top prize in Math are the Abel Prize (also presented by the King of Norway) and the Fields Medal (presented by the International Mathematical Union).

* The Iron Cross, being the most iconic Prussian and German military decoration, is frequently used in films and other works of fiction to make the chest of an German officer appear less empty. What many creators of such works are not aware of is that the Iron Cross was only instituted for the duration of four major wars, to wit the [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonicWars Wars of Liberation]] (1813-1815), the [[UsefulNotes/FrancoPrussianWar Franco-German War]] (1870-1871), UsefulNotes/WorldWarI (1914-1918) and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (1939-1945), and could not be awarded for service in any of the intervening wars and armed conflicts.[[note]] Officially, the Iron Crosses of 1813, 1870, 1914 and 1939 were considered separate decorations, and they differed in a number of details, especially the last one; the Nazis introduced the entirely new Knight's Cross with its many gradations.[[/note]] When for instance in the British TV series ''Edward VII'' UsefulNotes/OttoVonBismarck is shown wearing an Iron Cross in the 1860s, this is incorrect as Bismarck was too young to have served in the Wars of Liberation and the episodes were set before 1870. Similarly, as ''Film/ThoseMagnificentMenInTheirFlyingMachines'' is set in 1913, Captain Rumpelstoss (Karl Michael Vogler) is obviously too young to have served and been awarded an Iron Cross in the Franco-German War. Another occasional mistake is showing junior and field officers wearing Iron Crosses around their neck pre-1939; up until then the only grade of the Iron Cross to be worn around the neck was the Grand Cross, which was reserved to commanding generals[[note]] in practice this meant commanding at least an army corps [[/note]] for winning a battle or capturing or defending an important fortress.

People just ''love'' handing out awards to each other. Whether it's a [[MeritBadgesForEverything merit badge]], an [[NotThatKindOfDoctor honorary degree]], or a [[KnightFever knighthood]], giving someone an award simultaneously tells them, and everyone else, that [[SoProudOfYou they've done well]]. Many of the most famous and prestigious awards have become bywords for the highest achievement in the relevant field, or even in ''any'' field. If a fictional character gets an Oscar, Pulitzer or Nobel Prize, you know they must have done something [[MomentOfAwesome awesome]].
