Shirley Bassey leads Oscars 50th birthday tribute to James Bond

Shirley Bassey

English actor Sir Roger Moore embodied Bond seven times, including 1973's "Live and Let Die," 1983's "Octopussy" and 1985's "A View to Kill."

Actors George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan also played the lead role.

Bond films have historically received only a handful of Oscar nominations, mainly within the technical or music categories.

This year, "Skyfall," starring Daniel Craig in his third appearance as Bond, landed five nominations including Best Cinematography, Best Original Song and Best Original Score.
