Dame Shirely won't be alone at The Oscars this year—the February 24 ceremony will also feature Adele performing "Skyfall," the hit theme song from Bond's latest (and $1 billion-plus grossing) adventure, which is nominated in five categories (Best Original Song, Best Original Score, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Cinematography), is the first James Bond film to be nominated for a single Oscar since For Your Eyes Only in 1981.
