Thomas Montgomery Newman (born October 20, 1955) is an American film score composer. Throughout his career, Newman has been nominated for ten Academy Awards for his work.

Newman was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of Mississippi-born Martha Louise Montgomery and composer Alfred Newman. He is a member of a film-scoring dynasty in Hollywood that includes his father, his uncle Lionel Newman, his brother David Newman, and his cousins Joey Newman and Randy Newman, (who is best known as a singer and songwriter) and his sister Emma Newman.

Newman was educated at Yale University, and began his film-scoring career in 1984 with his score for Reckless. His breakthrough came in 1994, when he earned two Academy Award nominations for his scores to Little Women and The Shawshank Redemption; he was the only double-nominee that year. His critical and commercial success has continued in recent years with his scores for American Beauty (winner of the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media), Road to Perdition, Finding Nemo, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Pay it Forward, Erin Brockovich, The Good German and WALL-E.

Newman has composed music for television as well, including theme music for the series Boston Public and the miniseries Angels in America. His theme music for the television show Six Feet Under won two Grammy Awards in 2003, for Best Instrumental Composition as well as Best Instrumental Arrangement. Newman also wrote a commissioned concert work for orchestra, Reach Forth Our Hands, for the 1996 Cleveland Bicentennial. The Los Angeles Philharmonic has commissioned a new work by Newman to be performed by the Kronos Quartet and Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by Leonard Slatkin, during the orchestra's 2009-2010 season.

At the 79th Academy Awards, Newman appeared in the opening segment by Errol Morris, jokingly correcting a claim that he had been nominated for and failed to win an Academy Award eight times: "No, I've failed seven but this will be my eighth."

Though they were not composed specifically for the film, seven of Newman's previous score compositions were included in Michael Moore's 2007 documentary, Sicko. Newman received a special thanks credit, in addition to seven individual song credits.

A portion of his song "Brooks Was Here", as composed for and featured in the film The Shawshank Redemption, is played in the background of the artist Seal's song "My Vision".
