The British singer-songwriter won an Academy Award for his James Bond theme song.

23-year-old singer-songwriter Sam Smith won an Oscar for Best Original Song. “Writing’s On The Wall” for James Bond: Spectre pushed Sam Smith to the top of Hollywood along with Songwriter James Napes.

Openly gay Sam Smith dedicated his Oscar win to the LGBT community in his acceptance speech.

Sam Smith won against The Weeknd's “Earned It” for Fifty Shades of Grey, “Manta Ray” for Racing Extinction by J. Ralph and Lyric by Anohni, “Simple Song #3” for Youth by David Lang and Lady Gaga's “Til It Happens To You” for The Hunting Ground.

This is the second time in a row that James Bond movie wins an Oscar for best original song. In 2013, Adele took home the Oscar for her Skyfall song. That is pretty crazy. On top of that Adele and Sam Smith are both from the UK.
