The track - which was co-written by producer Paul Epworth - is the first from a Bond film to ever win an Academy Award, and Adele was suitably moved when she and Epworth dashed to the stage to accept the accolade.
"Thank you so much, this is amazing," she said before promptly bursting into tears.
She added: "I'd just like to thank Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson at Eon, Sony Pictures, MGM and Paul Epworth... And my man, I love you, baby!"
