No Time to Die wins best song Oscar

No Time to Die won the best song Oscar Sunday night.

Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell received Oscars for writing the title song to the 25th James Bond film. It was the third straight best song Oscar for the Bond film series, following 2012’s Skyfall and Writing’s on the Wall from 2015’s SPECTRE.

No Time to Die also had been nominated in the sound and visual effects categories. Dune won those Oscars.

The show’s in memoriam segment also included Leslie Bricusse, who co-wrote the lyrics for Goldfinger’s title song and who wrote the lyrics for the title song of You Only Live Twice.

The Oscars telecast also included a tribute to the Bond series via film clips while the title song for Live And Let Die played.

Eon confirms plans for Bond-themed reality show

Eon Productions on Sunday confirmed plans for a James Bond-themed reality show, 007’s Road to a Million, to be shown on Amazon Prime Video.

Details from the statement issued by Eon:

Prime Video has greenlit James Bond television format, 007’s Road to a Million. The UK Amazon Original series will be produced by 72 Films, in collaboration with legendary James Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and MGM Television. 007’s Road to a Million will join the thousands of TV shows and movies in the Prime Video catalogue.

007’s Road to a Million will see contestants competing in a global adventure to win the ultimate prize of £1million. Filmed in many of the historic locations featured throughout the seminal Bond films, this cinematic format will be a true test of intelligence and endurance. In addition to conquering physical obstacles, the contestants, who will compete in two-person teams, must correctly answer questions hidden in different locations around the world to advance to the next challenge.

Production on the reality show is to start later this year. Eon also provided A LINK for those interested to audition.

Amazon earlier this month completed its $8.45 billion acquisition of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Bond’s home studio.
