At the 56th Annual Grammy Awards held last night, Jan. 26, in Los Angeles, "Skyfall," finally garnered Bond some awards that were long overdue. The most recent in a long line of James Bond films, "Skyfall" has won the most awards for the franchise.

Not eligible for a 2012 Grammy nomination because of a late release date, of October 23, 2012, "Skyfall" earned nominations in the film categories at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards for Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media (Thomas Newman) and for Best Song Written For Visual Media (Adele); winning both. The eligibility period for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards was October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013, according to the Recording Academy.

Adele's victory at the 56th annual Grammy awards marked the 10th Grammy Award for the chanteuse with her songwriting partner, Paul Epworth. Unable to make it to the ceremony, Adele tweeted:

Wish I was there! Thank you for the grammy! (My 10th one! Whhaaa?) Have a wonderful night. I'm in bed, now feeling very restless x."

Also not able to attend, Paul Epworth tweeted:

We won!! Thanks to @TheGRAMMYs and all who voted for us! X :-)."

"Skyfall" won additional honors at the 2012 Golden Globes for Best Original Song as well.
