Oscars 2013: Adele's emotional acceptance speech and comeback performance
"Thank you so much, this is amazing!" said Adele.
She thanked James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and others involved in the film, before paying tribute to her boyfriend Simon Konecki. "And my man," she said. "I love you."
She and Simon have a four-month-old son, Angelo.
Earlier in the evening, Adele had performed the Bond theme tune, wearing a crystal-encrusted dress that weighed 15 kilos. It was her first performance since giving birth to Angelo back in October.
"I feel like Beyonce," she had quipped. "I'm really excited. Rehearsals have gone well."
The 24-year-old also revealed that her celebrations would be low-key. "I think I'm going to the Vanity Fair party, so that'll be quite nice. But I've got to get up at six, so one glass of champagne and I'm gone these days."
