    Watch: Randy Newman Featured on CBS Sunday Morning with His Family's "Movie Music Dynasty"
    CBS

    Randy Newman was on CBS Sunday Morning as part of the show's special Academy Awards episode, in a feature on his family and their "movie music dynasty." The segment looks at the family's deep roots in the film-scoring business, going back to his uncle Alfred Newman, and including his uncles Emil Newman and Lionel Newman, his cousins David Newman and Thomas Newman (Revolutionary Road, Angels in America), his nephew Joey Newman, and Randy Newman's own highly successful career in Hollywood—tying his uncle Alfred for the most Academy Award nominations in the family at twenty for such films as Ragtime, The Natural, and Toy Story, and Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story 3, for which he won Oscars for Best Original Song.

    "There are Newmans everywhere dotting Hollywood history from the beginning. It's one-of-a-kind. It's an extraordinary story," film-music historian John Burlingame tells CBS Sunday Monring. "When you look at the individuals and you see how talented each one of them is in their own way, when you put it all together, it's a bit mind-boggling."
