Laura Pausini, winner of Best Original Song – Motion Picture for “Io Si (Seen)” from “The Life Ahead” (Netflix) speaks during the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards broadcast on Feb. 28, 2021.

The 2021 Golden Globes were an awards ceremony unlike any other Golden Globes… but also an award show very much like every award show from the past 12 months in that the COVID-19 pandemic forced a combination of social distancing and remote acceptance speeches.

After Tracy Morgan read off the nominees for best original song at the 2021 Golden Globes on Sunday (Feb. 28) night, he revealed that "Io Sì (Seen)" from the Sophia Loren-starring Netflix film The Life Ahead nabbed the honor. Performed by Italian pop legend Laura Pausini, "Io Sì (Seen)" was written by the inestimable Diane Warren, Pausini and Niccolò Agliardi.

"Thank you Edoardo [Ponti, director] for letting us be a part of your amazing movie," Warren said in her remote acceptance speech. "It’s such a beautiful story about people who aren't usually seen and who see each other through love, and that's what inspired this song."

"I'm so, so … I feel goosebumps everywhere," Pausini said.

This is Diane Warren's first Golden Globe win.
