TriviaEducated at University of California. Cousin of composers Thomas Newman, Joey Newman, Maria Newman and David Newman Son of 'Irving Newman', a Hollywood physician and occasional songwriter. Born in New Orleans in Louisiana, but grew up in Los Angeles from an early age. In March of 2002, Newman finally won his first Academy Award for writing the Best Song in Monsters, Inc. (2001). In his acceptance speech, he thanked the music branch of the academy for giving him all those chances "to be humiliated." As a teenager, he was invited by a girl to a country club cotillion, but was subsequently asked not to come by the girl's father, who told him that no Jews were allowed. After hanging up the phone, Newman had to go and ask his father what a Jew was. His song "I Love L.A." is played by the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium after every home game victory. It was also played after the Dodgers lost in the final 2004 Playoff game against the Saint Louis Cardinals, prompting many of the Dodger fans who remained in the park to sing along while a year's worth of highlights were shown. ABC-TV's promo jingle "You'll Love It!" used during the 1985-1986 season, was derived from his song "I Love L.A.".
