Adele may have won her first Oscar for writing the latest James Bond title song "Skyfall," but she has her priorities right at home.

The singer-songwriter posted on Twitter a photo of her Hollywood golden boy standing beside a smaller toy souvenir statuette she brought home for her baby that read: Best Son.

While Adele, 24, has not yet revealed his name publicly, her boy with partner Simon Konecki, born last October, had traveled to Los Angeles with her for the Academy Awards show.

So far, Adele has kept her baby boy's name a closely guarded secret. But has she revealed the moniker by keeping it close to her heart?

Born in October, the little boy is staying with his mother in Los Angeles during Hollywood's awards season.

On an outing Monday to West Hollywood baby boutique Bel Bambini, Adele – who won a Golden Globe for her James Bond tune "Skyfall" and is scheduled to perform at the Oscars – was spotted wearing a gold necklace featuring the name "Angelo."

Academy Award Best Song Nominations: Who Will Win?

Might Adele wrestle a foul-mouthed bear for an Academy Award? Or will a criminal on the run sweep in to steal the statuette?

At this year's Academy Awards, it's anyone's guess.

The Oscar nominees were announced Jan. 10, and the five nominated tracks for Best Original Song range from jazzy tunes like the Norah Jones-sung "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" (Ted) to pop hits like Adele's "Skyfall" (Skyfall). The nominated bunch also includes moody, new age tracks like "Pi's Lullaby" (Life of Pi); bluesy ballads like the Scarlett Johansson-sung "Before My Time" (Chasing Ice); and Hugh Jackman's heart-wrenching, Broadway-ready ballad from Les Misérables, "Suddenly."

Listen to the nominated songs below – and then check out which songs (cough, mostly Disney songs in the '90s, cough) took home the Oscar for Best Original Songs in the past.

Roger Moore: Skyfall with Daniel Craig Is 'The Best, Best Bond of All'

Neither shaken, nor stirred. Just perennially cool.

While he'll no doubt be best remembered for the seven James Bond films he made from 1973 to 1985, Sir Roger Moore – he was knighted in 2003, for his humanitarian work on behalf of UNICEF – also wears many other labels proudly.

He was a young MGM star (opposite the then-equally young Elizabeth Taylor), a TV star and producer (The Saint), an author twice over (a 2008 autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the brand-new Bond on Bond: Reflections on 50 Years of James Bond Movies), and a word-class raconteur.

It was in those last two capacities that the London-born Sir Roger, a hale and hearty 85, spent time with PEOPLE in New York this week. Among the many opinions he shared were those on a certain movie franchise.

Skyfall May Be the Best James Bond Movie Yet: Review

How do you make a 50-year-old film franchise new again? By letting it feel its age.

With wry geriatric jokes, a plot that strikes 007 right where he lives and even some throwback gadgets, Skyfall gives James Bond a delightfully retro reboot. It also establishes Daniel Craig, who plays Bond, as the only man who can rival Sean Connery as lord of the spies.

Turns out, the first step in reviving Bond is to kill him. Under orders to shoot a foreign operative carrying a list of Britain's undercover agents, Bond's fellow spy Eve (Naomie Harris) accidentally hits 007.

James Bond Recipe: How to Make 007's Vesper Martini

Originally posted 10/15/2012 04:45PM

This version is stirred, not shaken. But no matter the method the perfect James Bond martini is easy to make, says Leo Robitschek, beverage director of the New York hotspot The NoMad Hotel.

With the latest Bond film, Skyfall – the 23rd title in the film series – set for release on Nov. 9, mixologist Robitschek shares his own version of the spy hero's famed vesper martini.

The drink was defined by author Ian Fleming in his first Bond book, 1953's Casino Royale. The debonair Bond, wrote Fleming, orders a very specific cocktail: three parts gin, one part vodka and one-half part Lillet Blanc, a French aperitif wine.

As the new Bond girl, Bérénice Marlohe couldn't feel luckier – except for one thing.

"Well, I missed Daniel Craig naked, unfortunately," she tells November's issue of Maxim about conflicting shooting schedules on the latest 007 caper, Skyfall, opening Nov. 9.

While she didn't get to see the handsome hunk who plays James Bond in the buff, the sultry French actress, 33, does reveal about the movie: "It's a terrific script. And I think they've never had such a great cast, like Ralph Fiennes, Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench ... and Bérénice Marlohe."
