Billie Eilish celebrates historic Oscar win with James Bond theme No Time To Die

There was no time to lose (sorry) for Billie, who wrote the third consecutive Bond theme to scoop an Oscar.

Billie Eilish has celebrated a historic win, scooping the Oscar for Best Original Song at last night's Academy Awards for No Time To Die. 

Billie - who co-wrote the song with her brother Finneas - beat out competition from Lin-Manuel Miranda (Encanto), long-time nominee Diane Warren (Four Good Days) and even Beyonce herself (King Richard) for the gong. 

Written for the James Bond film of the same name, and the final to see Daniel Craig star as 007, No Time To Die became the third consecutive Bond song to win an Oscar; Adele won for Skyfall in 2012, as did Sam Smith for Writing On The Wall from Spectre in 2017. 

Accepting the award, Billie thanked the siblings parents, who "have always been our biggest inspirations and our heroes. We love you as parents and we love you as real people, too.”

It's been a very, very busy awards season for Billie. Not only now an Oscar winner - the first person born in the 21st century to achieve the highest honour in Hollywood - she's also scooped a Grammy and a Golden Globe for the track. (All she needs now to complete the EGOT? An Emmy and a Tony...)

Upon its release in 2020, No Time To Die claimed the biggest opening week for a Bond theme ever, scoring 90,000 chart sales, including 10.6 million streams to debut at the top of the Official Singles Chart.

The second Bond film to become a UK Number 1 single, Billie became the youngest-ever artist to contribute a Bond theme song in the franchise's history.

Later this summer, she will also become the youngest-ever artist to headline Glastonbury, where she'll play the Pyramid Stage alongside fellow top-liners Paul McCartney and Kenderick Lamar.

All the 3 bond songs that won the oscars are beyond boring. The americans werent impressed either. Sam smith song didnt even reach top 40 (it spent 1 week on the top 100 on the hot 100. Billie elish song (i think is beyond terrible) entered # 14 or 15 on the second it fell downhill and spend 3 or 4 weeks on the top 100 of the hot 100. If i remember Adele song spend 1 week on the top 10 and went downhill fast too. Most bond songs released before those 3 in the 70s 80s or 90s were wayyyy better.
