The Oscar's on The Wall - SPECTRE wins Academy Award for Best Original Song

Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes won the Academy Award for their work on "Writing's on The Wall", the main title song for the latest James Bond film SPECTRE, which is now out on BluRay and DVD.

An incredulous Smith picked up the Oscar and dedicated it to the LGBT community after singing the song live on stage minutes before. He was picked by the Academy over songs like "Earned it", from FIFTY SHADES OF GREY and Lady Gaga's "Till it Happens to You" from the documentary of the same name.

This is the fifth triumph for the James Bond series at the Oscars after GOLDFINGER (1965, Best Sound - Norman Wanstall), THUNDERBALL (1966, Best Special Effects - John Stears), SKYFALL (2013, Best Sound Editing - Per Hallberg and Karen Baker / Best Original Song - Adele Adkins and Paul Epworth).
