Sam Smith wins Original Song Oscar for Writing’s On The Wall


Sam Smith

Although the movie industry is geared primarily as a form of visual entertainment, music plays a huge part in films. The right soundtrack adds to the atmosphere of the motion picture, making viewers break out in wide smiles, shed tears or feel dread and terror.

On Sunday night, the biggest and most illustrious film awards ceremony in the world took place at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Sunday night as the 88th Academy Awards came to town.

Sam Smith was the big musical winner on the night, bagging the Original Song Oscar for Writing’s On the Wall, the theme song from James Bond film SPECTRE.

Other awards relating to music and sound include the Music (Original Score) Oscar, awarded to The Hateful Eight, while Mad Max: Fury Road bagged both Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.

In addition, the Documentary (Feature) Oscar was awarded to Amy, the biographical account of the life and death of British singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse.
