British singer Adele, in her first major public appearance since giving birth in October, shared with songwriter Paul Epworth the Golden Globes trophy for performing and co-writing the best original song, "Skyfall," for the James Bond movie of the same name.

Adele, a 24-year-old Grammy winner, attended Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills as a nominee, rather than a performer.

"Oh, my God!" Adele said again and again, before offering thanks to the organization that sponsors the Golden Globes.  "I'd like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. I never thought I'd say that."

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is composed of 93 working journalists - from at least 55 countries -  who cover the US entertainment industry
 But the organization is best known for the annual Golden Globe Awards held in January. The first Golden Globes awards were held in 1944. Today, it is one of the most watch TV programs in the world - and often seen as a tip sheet for the Oscars, held on Feb. 10, 2013.

Adele performed and co-wrote the theme song for "Skyfall," a $1 billion box-office hit, while her Grammy-winning heartbreak album "21" scored the rare feat in December of topping all U.S. album sales for a second straight year.
