Adele, Daniel Day-Lewis dominate ceremony

Adele and Daniel Day-Lewis are amongst the big winners at this year's Oscars ceremony.

The Academy Awards are perhaps the biggest, glitziest show in town. Perhaps the most high profile ceremony on the planet, the Oscars - as they are known - cause a cavalcade of headlines year in, year out.

This year proved to be no exception. Daniel Day-Lewis picked up the gong for 'Best Actor' - becoming the first person in history to win the award three times. Approaching the podium, the Anglo-Irish actor said: "I really don't know how any of this happened. I do know I've received much more than my fair share of good fortune in my life".

Elsewhere, Adele won 'Best Original Song' for her Bond theme 'Skyfall'. The first time a Bond theme has picked up an Oscar for some 47 years, the singer collected the award and thanked producer and collaborator Paul Epworth for "believing in me all the time".

The Bond franchise was honoured with a special segment at the Oscars last night, in honour of the sustained success it has earned across its 50 year history. Former Bond girl Halle Berry introduced the show, which also included a typically lung bursting performance from Shirley Bassey.
