Writer/Musicians Diane Warren, Trent Reznor + Atticus Ross Win Big At Golden Globes

In addition to the annual Golden Globes recognizing the best in American film and television, music enjoys a category of its own.

The Sunday nights 2021’s winners in this field bore a strange resemblance to the list of honorees from a decade ago, with Diane Warren, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, adding to their 2011 trophies.

Each of the aforementioned celebrants were joined by collaborators with Reznor and Ross, (who won in 2011 for The Social Network,) repeating their decade old victory for the score for Soul with help from Jon Batiste who composed the jazz parts of the film. This particular win marked only the second time in the history of the Globes that a trio has triumphed in the category, following Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Byrne, and Cong Su who won in 1987 for The Last Emperor.

Diane Warren’s win for “Io Sì (Seen)” from Netflix’s The Life Ahead, shared this year’s honor with singer Laura Pausini and Niccolò Agliardi beating out contenders from Judas and the Black Messiah, One Night in Miami, Trial of the Chicago 7 and The United States vs. Billie Holiday. The incredibly accomplished songwriter’s win 10 years back was for “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” from Burlesque.

Notwithstanding Billie Holiday (whose Andra Day won Best Actress in a Drama), each of this year’s Globe best song contenders are also among the the 2021 list of 15 Oscar nominations in the same category to take place Sunday, April 25th.
