    Laura Pausini Wins First Golden Globe with 'Io Si/Seen'

    International star Laura Pausini won her first Golden Globe last night during a virtual ceremony that aired on NBC and was hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

    The acclaimed Italian singer-songwriter took the award for Best Original Song with renowned songwriters Diane Warren and Niccolò Agliardi for ‘Io Sì/Seen’, featured on the Netflix film The Life Ahead, directed by Edoardo Ponti, and starring Sophia Loren.

    Laura Pausini said: "Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would win a Golden Globe! And to be the first woman to win with a song in Italian… I am truly overwhelmed. What an honor. I want to thank Sophia Loren and Edoardo Ponti for making me part of this wonderful adventure. Thank you to the musical genius that is Diane Warren, to the music supervisor Bonnie Greenberg and, Niccolò Agliardi.

    “It just happens to be the 28th anniversary of the first time I performed in San Remo and that completely changed my life. I smile, thinking of that young girl that never would have thought she would get this far. I dedicate this award to Italy, my family, and my daughter, whom I hope remembers the happiness she sees in her mother’s eyes and to never give up on her dreams."

    ‘Io Si/ Seen’ was written by Diane Warren, Laura Pausini, and Niccolò Agliardi and executive produced by Bonnie Greenberg (musical supervisor for films such as My Best Friend’s Wedding, The Mask, What Women Want, among others). In addition to the Italian version, the winning song was also released in four other languages including English (Seen), Spanish (Yo Si), Portuguese (Eu Sim), and French (Moi Si).

    ‘Io Si/Seen’ has also been nominated for the Critics’ Choice Awards (the ceremony will take place on March 7), and it is one of the songs included on the Oscars® shortlist in the Best Song category.

    Marco Alboni, Chairman and CEO, Warner Music Italy, and Roberto Razzini, Managing Director, Warner Chappell Music Italy say: “Congratulations to Laura on this incredible achievement.  And for her to be the first woman to win with a song in Italian makes it an even more special moment.  Next stop the Oscars!”
