Oscars Roundup: The Big Music Winners
The Oscars might be a movie award ceremony, but music was a big part of the 2013 event.

The big musical winners of the evening were Adele and producer Paul Epworth who took the Best Song Oscar for their Bond theme to "Skyfall". Adele's live "Skyfall" performance pretty much stole the show, but she wasn't the only Bond girl to perform on the night - Shirley Bassey took to the stage to perform her 1964 classic "Goldfinger".

Excellent music documentary "Searching For Sugarman", about the hunt for a lost but beloved musician, won Best Documentary. Sadly the team accepting the award were rushed off stage with the new Jaws theme which prompts anyone who talks for too long during their speech. A nice idea, but mean in practise - especially when "Life Of Pi" won Best Visual Effects and tried to tell the world about their effects team needing support after going bankrupt, only to hear the Jaws them prodding them off stage.

Lots of musical performers also took to the stage, from Catherine Zeta Jones who celebrated Chicago's 10th anniversary with "All That Jazz" to Hugh Jackman and the lead song from the "Les Miserables" score.

Did you see the Oscars event? What was your favorite bit?
