The 'Someone Like You' star's track has got the nod in the Original Music category at next month's event.

Adele's hit single 'Skyfall' has helped the latest James Bond movie receive a nomination at the BAFTAs 2013.

James Bond 'Skyfall' is up for a total of eight nominations including Outstanding British Film and Best Supporting Actor for Javier Bardem. 

'Skyfall' is also among the songs on an extended shortlist for the Best Original Song at this year's Academy Awards.

The full list of nominated films in the Original Music category are as follows:

  • Anna Karenina
  • Argo
  • Life of Pi
  • Lincoln 
  • Skyfall

Meanwhile, Adele is also expected to make her first public appearance since giving birth last year at next month's Oscars.

The singer is expected to sing her hit 'Skyfall' during a special James Bond segment of the ceremony – celebrating 50 years of the 007 franchise.

The British Academy Film Awards 2013 will take place on 10th February in London.
