Sam Smith wins the best song Oscar for his James Bond Spectre

Sam Smith, the warbler behind the theme for the James Bond film, Spectre, has won the best song Oscar. Smith’s song, The Writing’s on the Wall, is the second Bond theme to win the Oscar after Adele’s Skyfall took the prize in 2013. Like Adele, Smith had already won the Golden Globe for best song ahead of the Oscars. The Writing’s on the Wall became the first Bond theme to reach No 1 in the UK pop charts in October last year. Co-produced with dance act Disclosure, it achieved 700,000 combined sales of physical copies and streams in its first week, more than Skyfall, which made it to No 2.     Featuring content from the Guardian
