Adele has already won multiple Grammys, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards and BRIT Awards, and now she has to make room on her mantle for a Golden Globe.
The British songbird picked up the trophy for Best Original Song for “Skyfall,” the theme song to the James Bond flick of the same name, at the 70th annual Golden Globes, taking place tonight (January 13) in Los Angeles.
“Oh my god!” a genuinely excited Adele, who was up against familiar names such as Keith Urban, Jon Bon Jovi, and Taylor Swift, said while accepting her award. “Honestly, I’ve come out for a night out with my friend… we’re both new mums… I was not expecting this!”
“I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press — I never thought I’d ever say that,” she said, before thanking Bond actor Daniel Craig, her boyfriend Simon, who she said convinced her to do the song, and her “lovely son.”
Now that Adele’s “Skyfall” has the Golden Globe, it’s looking more likely that it’ll also win the Best Original Song Oscar. The track shares the category, which awards the songwriters and composers, with “Before My Time” from Chasing Ice by J. Ralph, “Everybody Needs A Best Friend” from Ted by Seth MacFarlane, “Pi’s Lullaby” from Life of Pi by Mychael Danna and Bombay Jayashri and “Suddenly” from Les Misérables by Claude-Michel Schönberg, Herbert Kretzmer and Alain Boublil.
We’ll see if “Skyfall” wins again when the 2013 Oscars are handed out on February 24.
