Adele and Paul Epworth, writers of the song "Skyfall" for the film "Skyfall," won the Best Song Award at the 18th annual Critics' Choice Awards at Barker Hangar on January 10, 2013 in Santa Monica, California. The awards show was hosted by Sam Rubin and was broadcast on the CW Network.
This was the first Critics' Choice nomination and win for both Adele and Paul Epworth.
The duo have also been nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for this Bond song.
In "Skyfall," Bond's (Daniel Craig) loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested as her past comes back to haunt her, bringing MI6 under attack.
Great songs have been a trademark for the "Bond" franchise. In fact, three Bond films have gone on to receive Oscar nominations for Best Song, including "Live and Let Die" in 1974, "The Spy Who Loved Me" in 1978 (song titled "Nobody Does It Better") and "For Your Eyes Only" in 1981. Perhaps with a Critic's Choice Award win, this may be the year for a "Bond" film to win an Oscar for Best Song.

Whatever your movie choice this week, please remember your movie theater etiquette: silence your cell phones and no texting, please don't talk during the film and remove your children if they become a distraction to other audience members. Don't forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
