So, last night was the Grammy Awards where Metallica played "One" with some dude on a piano, and people like Macklemore and Snarky Puppy were winners. Man, we're getting old. But there were some awards worth keeping an eye on for movie fans.

Despite what whoever was pressing the "Jaws" theme button last night believes, the highlights of the annual Academy Awards tend not to be the montages and dance numbers, but the speeches. It's the moment where an actor or artist is rewarded by their peers, and thanks the Academy with wit, graciousness, charm, enormous egotism, or perhaps a bit of all the above.

It's been a good year for the James Bond franchise. Celebrating fifty years, the series has never seemed more vibrant, with "Skyfall" becoming a billion dollar earner and the biggest 007 entry of all time. That feat hasn't been ignored by the Academy, with the movie picking up five (below-the-line) nominations and the franchise to be honored via a tribute segment as part of the telecast next month. But there's even more to get shaken not stirred about.

If you thought Bond Day was over or that the team behind "Skyfall" were done making you listen to Adele's theme song, guess again. With the official tune dropping yesterday and being very well received (it's certainly the best theme in recent memory), the marketing machine continues today.

Well, that was inevitable. Not even 007 himself could stop Adele's "Skyfall" from leaking early (it's officially set for a premiere at 7:07 p.m. EST tonight or 0:07 am in the U.K. -- you get the connection, right?) and now that it's arrived via a rogue French radio station (sacre bleu!), it confirms that it's as strong as we had hoped.

A couple of weeks ago it was pretty much confirmed that Brit sensation Adele would be lending her impressive pipes to "Skyfall." But now it's officially official as artwork and details for the song -- also called "Skyfall" -- have arrived.

While the producers of "Skyfall" have been pretty good at keeping details tightly guarded, one of the worst kept secrets around the production was who was going be singing the theme song for the movie. Adele had been tipped for months, and being a Brit herself, and coming off a six-Grammy win earlier this year, it would almost be a crime if she didn't do it. And alas, Showbiz 411 confirms she'll be singing the song that we presume she'll be writing as well.

Does anyone still listen to Paul Potts? In case you forgot, he made a brief cultural splash a few years ago when he showed up on "Britain's Got Talent" and wowed audiences Susan Boyle-style, leading to a brief run of concerts and fame, before everyone moved to something else. But a movie about his life was in the works anyway, and the last we heard about it was all the way back in the fall of 2010, when "The Devil Wears Prada" director David Frankel was attached to direct. Well, belive it or not, this thing is still happening.
