Grammy Awards 2014: Adele wins Best Original Song for Skyfall

skyfall_2012-3-1200x759

Movies don’t get to pat themselves on the back for a month, as the Oscars aren’t until this March but that doesn’t mean that movie music has to sit idly by while the rest of the world celebrates. The Grammy Awards are tonight in Los Angeles, which means that in addition to all the mainstream music being honored, music used in movies will be honored as well.

One of the most well known categories for the average music listener is the category for Best Original Song. The list is a little dated, but the Grammys have a goofy format when it comes to honoring certain songs from certain movies. Nevertheless, once we all saw Adele on the nominations for Skyfall, we knew who the winner would be.

Adele picked up the Grammy for Best Original Song for her work on the James Bond song. Despite it coming out at the end of 2012, Adele is picking up her Grammy for it in 2014 and frankly no one is complying about it so long as she got the win.

“Atlas” from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” — (Coldplay)
“Silver Lining” from “Silver Linings Playbook” — (Jessie J)
“Skyfall” from “Skyfall”– (Adele) — WINNER
“We Both Know” from “Safe Haven” — (Colbie Caillat Featuring Gavin DeGraw)
“Young And Beautiful” from “The Great Gatsby” — (Lana Del Rey)
“You’ve Got Time” from Orange Is The New Black –  (Regina Spektor)

    Lana Del Rey should have won. Young and Beautiful was perfect for The Great Gatsby, a great movie. Skyfall should not even have been nominated because it was released around a year and a half ago in 2012. Unbelievable…

      While I loved Skyfall, it does boggle my mind that the Grammys can be so all over the place with their nominations process. Surprised they didn’t have Tina Turner up for GoldenEye given how messy the process is.
