Someone has finally cut Adele a break! After two consecutive years of suffering through being exposed to the point of being designated chief representative of the human race, the British songstress has won the Oscar for Best Original Song for "Skyfall," the theme song for the 23rd Bond film, along with co-writer Paul Epworth, at the 85th Academy Awards in LA.
Beating out Taylor Swift and John Bon Jovi, the 24 year-old "Rolling in the Deep" singer was a heavy favorite to take the gold, having won the Golden Globe for the same category, as well as the Brit award for single of the year.
The Skyfall film, starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mendes, recently became the biggest grossing film of all time at the British box office. Adele's 2011 album 21 has sold over 25 million copies worldwide.
