London - Adele feels like Meryl Streep with her Oscar nomination.

The British singer/songwriter in is the running for Best Original Song for her track Skyfall from the same-titled James Bond film and she is so over-whelmed to be up for an Academy Award she feels like the actress, who has taken home three gold statuettes.

Sharing her joy on Twitter, Adele posted: "Oh my god I feel like Meryl Streep!! Thank you x (sic)"

The latest spy instalment's music and sounds are also nominated for Best Original Score, Best Achievement in Sound Editing and Achievement in sound mixing as well as the film gaining eight BAFTA nominations - including Outstanding British Film.

Missing out on several awards

However, star Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes missed out on several Best Actor and Best Director awards at this year's ceremonies.

Star Trek: Into Darkness actress Alice Eve and War Horse's Jeremy Irvine, who are fans of Sam's latest instalment and the entire franchise, insisted the nominations are well merited and are proud of its achievement.

Speaking from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' (BAFTA) headquarters in London earlier this week, Jeremy said: "Skyfall has taken quite a few, it's amazing to see a movie that is part of a franchise stand alone."

On her turn, Alice added: "And such a high grossing movie. To come in and take artistic credit, which it deserves, is very unusual."
