    Nominated for: The Shawshank Redemption andLittle Women The Oscar went to: Hans Zimmer for The Lion King We begin at the beginning (which is really somewhere in the early middle of Newman’s career) with a double-nomination for his work on Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption and Gillian Armstrong’s Little Women. This was a monumental start to ...

    Nominated for: Unstrung Heroes (Best Original Comedy/Musical Score) The Oscar went to: Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz for Pocahontas Here’s a personal story about Unstrung Heroes: I have seen it exactly once, soon after it was released on video, when my parents rented it for movie night. I hated it. I couldn’t tell you what it was about, just tha...

    Nominated for: American Beauty The Oscar went to: John Corigliano for The Red Violin The power of this score can be distilled into a single fact: Thomas Newman is the reason American Beauty’s infamous and otherwise embarrassing plastic-bag scene worked. It’s a movie whose reputation has yo-yoed a lot over the past 20 years, culminating in a near-un...

    Nominated for: Road to Perdition The Oscar went to: Elliot Goldenthal for Frida As a follow-up to American Beauty, Road to Perdition represented a huge departure for both Mendes as a director and Newman as a composer. From a contemporary family dramedy about white middle-class American malaise to a thoughtful period drama about a gangster with a he...

    Nominated for: Finding Nemo The Oscar went to: Howard Shore for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King American Beauty without the dread, Finding Nemo is the sweetest score on this list. (“Nemo Egg”is practically a lullaby.) There’s an “innate drama” in reverb, Newman tells me, but here it feels like a thematically significant creative choic...

    Nominated for: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events The Oscar went to: Jan A.P. Kaczmarek for Finding Neverland Compared to the many phenomenal scores by Thomas Newman that were never nominated by Oscar (Meet Joe Black, The War, Desperately Seeking Susan, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Second Best Exotic Marigo...

    Nominated for: The Good German The Oscar went to: Gustavo Santaolalla for Babel Steven Soderbergh didn’t quite nail this throwback to postwar noirs, but Newman’s deliciously effective score is almost good enough to make you think the director did. As a listener, it’s so much fun to hear Newman step out of his comfort zone and into a dark alleyway s...

    Nominated for: WALL-E The Oscar went to: A.R. Rahman for Slumdog Millionaire Aaaaaand we’re back to the Newman we know and love. In case you’ve forgotten, much of Wall-E is dialogue-free, and though our unlikely hero can’t say more than two words (his own name and that of his floating one and only, Eve), Newman does a masterful (and occasionally hi...

    Nominated for: Skyfall The Oscar went to: Mychael Danna for Life of Pi “When you’re working with a Bond franchise, the voice of Tom Newman has way less to do,” Newman told me. “The franchise will win out over the individual.” That said, his score is as dark and surprising as it is reverent to its Monty Norman’s original James Bond theme. Do I think...

    Nominated for: Saving Mr. Banks The Oscar went to: Steven Price for Gravity Like The Good German before it, here is an instance of Newman’s music doing the majority of emotional heavy lifting for a movie that is otherwise a complete failure. Saving Mr. Banks is a deceptively nasty little entry in Disney’s catalogue — a piece of revisionist history ...
