Connecticut-born Alfred Newman (1901-1970) helped define American film music. He developed a film scoring method named for him, composed the theme music for the showing of the 20th Century logo, and wrote music for almost 250 movies and TV shows. Music is definitely a family business: Brothers Lionel and Emil, children Thomas, Maria, and David, and nephew Randy Newman all became composers. He won nine Academy Awards, for Alexander's Ragtime Band, Tin Pan Alley, The Song of Bernadette, Mother Wore Tights, With a Song in My Heart, Call Me Madam, Love Is a Many Splendored Thing, The King and I, and Camelot (adaptation) and was nominated thirty-six times more. Some might argue that certain non-winning scores were among his best, including Wuthering Heights, How Green Was My Valley, and All About Eve.
