Adele‘s track ”SKYFALL” from the latest 007 James Bond film has been nominated for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards. It is the first Academy Awards nominee for best original song in a decade to have also reached top 10 hit billing on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“Skyfall” is a nominee is good company : “Les Misérables,” “Suddenly,” “Pi’s Lullaby”, J. Ralph’s “Before My Time” from the documentary “Chasing Ice” and ”Everybody Needs A Best Friend” from “Ted,” lyrics from Seth MacFarlane who announced the nominations at Oscars’ headquarters this morning in Beverly Hills.
According to Billboard Magazine: “As a Hot 100 hit, Adele’s song SKYFALL far outpaced its competition. It peaked at No. 8 and has sold 1.3 million copies, according to Soundscan. The last top 10 song to receive a nomination was Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” from the film “8 Mile.” It reached No. 1 in November of 2002, spent a total of 12 weeks atop the list, and went on to win the Academy Award the following year.”
It’s going to be a tough choice between SKYFALL & the screen version of LES MISERABLES….but my gut feeling tells me this epic song will take home Oscar…”hold your breath and count to 10!“

Without Ludovic Bource‘s Original Score The Artist directed by Michel Hazanavicius would not have had a voice! The Artist won the Golden Globe Awards for Best Film, Jean Dujardin took home Best Actor and Ludovic Bource earned the Best Film Score. Although an exquisitely directed silent film with actors brilliantly showcasing their craft, the music cannot help but take center stage making the film come to life and taking the viewers on a fantastic musical journey of feelings and emotions giving The Artist its voice!
