Hove-based singer Adele scoops Golden Globe for James Bond theme tune
8:59am Monday 14th January 2013 in News
Singer Adele has been honoured at a prestigious Hollywood awards ceremony.
The Hove-based performer gushed "oh my God" repeatedly as she took to the stage with co-writer Paul Epworth to collect the Golden Globe for best original song for a motion picture for their theme tune to the James Bond adventure Skyfall.
She then offered her gratitude to the group that presents the Globes, saying: “I'd like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. I never thought I'd say that.”
It was one of a number of British victories at the ceremony in Los Angeles.
Dame Maggie Smith was the first Briton of the night to win, collecting her award for best supporting actress in a TV miniseries for her role as Violet Crawley in ITV's Downton Abbey.
British blockbuster Les Miserables, which features 10-year-old Isabelle Allen, of East Dean, Eastbourne, took centre stage at the awards, with the adaptation taking home three gongs.
Directed by British filmmaker Tom Hooper, the musical scooped the best movie, musical or comedy while leading man Hugh Jackman collected best actor in a musical or comedy for his role as Jean Valjean.
