James Bond has good Oscar night

James Bond still holds his allure, either that, or the franchise continues to be expertly marketed--probably a little of both.

James Bond continues to hold his allure; either that, or the franchise continues to be expertly marketed–probably a little of both.

Fifty years of the James Bond film franchise were remembered during the 85th Oscar ceremony at the Dolby Theater with a stylish montage of film clips and a performance by Dame Shirley Bassey belting out the title track to “Goldfinger.”

Adele also gave a sterling performance of “Skyfall,” with her deep, velvety title track incarnation picking up the Oscar for Original Song, which she shared with fellow Brit music producer and songwriter Paul Epworth.

Other Oscar-winning Brits included Jacqueline Durran nabbing Costume Design for “Anna Karenina,” and Lisa Westcott and Julie Dartnell winning Makeup and Hairstyling for “Les Miserables.”

Daniel Day-Lewis became the first actor to win three Oscars after taking Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln.

“Life of Pi” picked up the most Oscars, with a tally of four, including Best Picture.
