Grammy Award winner, Golden Globe winner, and now Oscar winner. The award for Best Original Song was handed to Adele for her song "Skyfall" at the 85th Academy Awards, held Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

The singer, who performed the song earlier in the evening, later struggled to hold back tears as she accepted the award onstage with her co-writer Paul Epworth. The song was written for Sam Mendes's 2012 James Bond film Skyfall.

The other nominees for the award are "Before My Time" from Chasing Ice, "Everybody Needs A Best Friend" from Ted, "Pi's Lullaby" from Life of Pi, and "Suddenly" from Les Misérables.

Mychael Danna won the award for Best Original Score for Life of Pi. The Best Sound Editing award saw a tie (only the sixth in Oscar history!) with Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers for Skyfall and Paul N.J. Ottosson for Zero Dark Thirty. Andy Nelson, Mark Paterson, and Simon Hayes won Best Sound Mixing for their work in Les Misérables.

This year's Oscars is the first to celebrate a theme, that of music in film.
