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).

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.
