21 Famous Singers Who Won An Academy Award
Anyone who’s heard “Skyfall” can understand why this song is Oscar-worthy. At the 85th Academy Awards, Adele took home the Oscar for Best Original Song. “Skyfall” also received the Golden Globe for that same category, the Brit Award for British Single of the Year, a Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media, and the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Song, meaning the Bond theme made history as the first one to win all of these awards. Sony reached out to Adele specifically because of her music’s “soulful, haunting, evocative quality,” and by the looks of it, they made the perfect choice.
