Skyfall Picks Up Awards on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Skyfall Picks Up Awards on Both Sides of the Atlantic
The twenty-third Bond film, "Skyfall", had quite a night on Sunday. First, the movie that was
directed by Sam Mendes won two BAFTA's for both "Original Music" and "Outstanding
British Film".

Then, on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Roger Deakins picked up the 27th American
Society of Cinematographers Award for outstanding achievement in film for "Skyfall". This
made Deakins a third time winner of the award as he first won it eighteen years ago for "The
Shawshank Redemption" and again six years ago for "No Country for Old Men."

Meanwhile backstage in London Mendes was taking to reporters about Skyfall and maybe
directing another film in the franchise, the director said, 'I've had a great time, it's been a
huge learning curve and we would want to make a better movie next time around, and if we
thought we do that they might let me have another go again.'

Although Skyfall did not pick up a nomination in the Best Picture category at this year's
Oscars, the movie did receive a nomination for the theme song by Adele and if she does
win, it would be the first Bond.
