There are essentially four possible narratives that could unfold.
1) “Argo” continues its general awards sweep.
2) The Weinsteins‘ campaigning pays off in spades, and “Silver Linings Playbook” sweeps.
3) “Lincoln” takes Best Picture, Director and Actor, being deemed the most “important” of the nominees.
4) Everyone’s been underestimating “Life Of Pi,” and it surprises with the top prize.

The multiplatinum songbird will be performing her hit song “Skyfall” at the Academy Awards next month, the show’s organizers announced Wednesday, eonline.com reported

“Skyfall” single was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, where famous albums were previously created by The Beatles and Pink Floyd. It was released on October 5 (Global James Bond day), and it debuted at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is the first Bong song nominated for an Oscar since “For Your Eyes Only” in 1981. The album is also the highest charting since 1985’s A VIEW TO A KILL. It is the second Bond soundtrack in the franchise’s 50-year history to not feature the title track on the album and is solely comprised of the Oscar-nominated score of Thomas Newman.

The 23rd James Bond installment hits $162.76 million with the biggest take of all time.

LONDON – Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, has crossed the £100 million ($161.5 million) mark at the U.K. box office, the first film ever to do so.

Eon Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment trumpeted the movie’s success on Monday. The 23rd installment of the Bond franchise has now taken $162.76 million ( £100.46 million) at the U.K. box office.

The tally means the Bond film is now the most successful U.K. release in history, overtaking Avatar, which had a lifetime gross of $151.3 million (£94 million) over the course of its 11 months in release in U.K. cinemas.

Skyfall opened in 587 cinemas across the U.K. and Ireland on Oct. 26. The movie has generated more than $1 billion in ticket sales worldwide.

In the movie, Craig returns for his third outing as Ian Fleming’s 007 to find his loyalty to M tested as her past comes back to haunt her.

The film is from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. Directed by Sam Mendes, Skyfall is written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and John Logan.
