Two Golden Globes nominations for The
Life Ahead by Edoardo Ponti, which will compete in the Best Foreign
Language Film and Best Original Song categories. The awaited nomination for Sophia
Loren as Best Actress wasn’t achieved. Laura Pausini is nominated for the
song Io sì/Seen, a collaboration between the Italian singer and Diane Warren
and Niccolò Agliardi.
“Every achievement for Io sì/Seen
is always a great emotion for me, a nice shock to the heart. I remember the
first time I heard the track when Diane proposed it to me. I felt a connection
to that melody, a sudden tie that binds when something special is about to happen,”
says the Italian singer. “From the outset I’ve been very confident in this song,
in this film and the message they both brings. I wanted to work personally on
the Italian lyrics with Niccolò Agliardi to make sure to convey the spirit in
full. A Golden Globe nomination is a joy beyond words for me and once again I’m
honored to represent Italy in the world. I wish to thank Diane Warren, Edoardo
Ponti and Bonnie Greenberg to make it all happen.”
Among the Best Foreign Language Film
nominees, Two of Us by Italian filmmaker Filippo Meneghetti, Thomas
Vinterberg’s Another Round, Mexico’s La Llorona, and Minari.
The award ceremony will take place
in Los Angeles on February 28th.
