Liza Minnelli was born in L.A., to world-renowned actress/singer Judy Garland and film director Vincente
Minnelli, on March 12, 1946. While she made her initial appearances with her mother, she stepped into the limelight on her
own to establish a credible career as an entertainer/performer. Minnelli got her start in film as a toddler. She was cast
In the Good Old Summertime (1949), along with leading lady, Garland and Van Johnson. In 1951, her parents split. Her mother
remarried in 1952 to producer Sid Luft. The relationship produced two more children, Minnelli's half-siblings, Lorna and Joey.
Her father also remarried in the 50s, and he had a daughter, Christiana. Minnelli's relationship with her mother was strained
due to Garland's bouts with depression and dependency on pills, but she managed to maintain a close-knit relationship with
In her formative teen years, Minnelli ditched the idea of school and set off for the Big Apple to become
a stage actress. She scored a part in the musical, Best Foot Forward, a 1963 off-Broadway revival. Around the same time, she
made appearances on The Judy Garland Show. She additionally shared the stage with her mother at the Palladium in London and
captivated fans with her musical talents. In an interview with The New York Times, Minnelli said, "It was like Mama suddenly
realized I was good." In her debut starring Broadway role, Minnelli was cast in Flora, The Red Menace in 1965. It was on Broadway
for only a short stint but it earned Minnelli a Tony for Best Actress in a Musical - a very impressive feat, considering Minnelli
was only 19 at the time. Minnelli continued to step out of her mother's shadow and co-starred in Charlie Bubbles in 1967.
She went on to play a misfit character known as Pookie in The Sterile Cuckoo in 1969 and her performance garnered her an Academy
Award nod for Best Actress. She went to work in Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon at which time, her mother passed away
from an accidental drug overdose in 1969. Two years after her mother's death, Minnelli scored what turned out to be her most
legendary role. She was cast as Sally Bowles in the musical, Cabaret (1972). The film captured Minnelli's scope of talents
as both a singer and an actress. Minnelli took home the Academy Award for Best Actress for her highly praised performance
as Bowles. She kept her momentum going with the TV special, Liza with a Z. The show earned an Emmy for Outstanding Single
Program - Variety and Popular Music in 1973. After those milestone moments, Minnelli's film career hit a slippery slope. Lucky
Lady (1975), A Matter of Time (1976) and New York, New York (1977) all proved to be disappointments. But in 1977, Minnelli
reunited with Broadway, starring in The Act. She was honored with her second Tony Award for Best Actress in a musical. In
1981, she returned to film and co-starred opposite Dudley Moore in Arthur. During the 80s, Minnelli faced her own demons and
checked herself into the Betty Ford Clinic. After rehabilitation, she embarked on a rigorous tour and took roles in films
like Rent-A-Cop (1987) and Arthur 2: On the Rocks (1988).
Minnelli's father died in 1986 and Minnelli went on to take
part in Minnelli on Minnelli: Liza Remembers Vincente, a documentary, which claimed multiple Emmy Award nods. Around the same
time, she also toured worldwide with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. for The Ultimate Event.
Throughout the 2000s,
fans were treated to more Liza Minnelli when she made appearances in shows like Arrested Development and Sex and the City
2. But, she dedicated most of her time to giving live concerts, which she still does today.
