"I appreciate that science is celebrated in this way," Moser said, admitting to having been "very, very nervous" when he was given the Nobel Prize.
At 7 p.m. the scientists, dignitaries, royalty and others were seated for the lavish banquet in Stockholm City Hall, which was broadcast live on Swedish TV.
To find out more about the winners, Radio Sweden spoke to Ulrika Björksten, head of Swedish Radio's Science Department, who tells us more about the winners in the Medicine, Chemistry and Physics categories.
"They are quite close to the intention of Alfred Nobel when he wrote his will, especially the physics prize. This year it is really an invention which is rewarded, the LED lamp which has enabled us to save an enormous amount of energy in our cities and which will also enable several parts of the globe which do not have electric lighting to get electric lighting."
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2014 was awarded jointly to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources".
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014 was awarded jointly to Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner "for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy".
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2014 was awarded with one half to John O'Keefe and the other half jointly to May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser "for their discoveries of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain".
Radio Sweden will also hear from literature laureate Patrick Modiano who spoke to Swedish Radio in his home.
