Odds-on favorites Adele and Paul Epworth won the Golden Globe for best original song Sunday night, taking home the prize for the title track from the James Bond film “Skyfall.”
The singer exclaimed “Oh my God!” four times after taking the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Adele included her boyfriend in her thank yous, saying he convinced her to do the song. It was Adele’s first appearance since giving birth to a son.
“I was not expecting this,” she said. “Thank you for letting me be part of your world.”
Adele released “Skyfall” on October 5 to much fanfare, and it became the singer’s first single to debut in the Top 10 on the Hot 100, peaking at No. 8. In winning the category, Adele bested fellow recording stars Jon Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban.
Mychael Danna won the best score award for his work on Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi,” which he called a film of a lifetime. For both Danna and Adele, the Golden Globe nominations were their first.
