Lyricist Marilyn Bergman, who died on Saturday, and her husband Alan Bergman, were one of the most revered writing tandems in the annals of movie music history, winning three Oscars in 16 nominations. They were also nominated for eight Emmys, winning four. The Bergmans earned an Emmy nomination for writing the theme song for Brooklyn Bridge. Their credits also include writing the lyrics for the theme songs of Good Times, Maude and Alice. "There was only one Marilyn Bergman," tweeted Norman Lear. "No one knew that more than her husband and partner in music, Alan. To those of us who loved the Bergman’s lyrics, Marilyn takes a bit of our hearts and souls with her today."
