Liza Minnelli biography (bio):
Liza Minnelli is an American actress and singer. She is the daughter of legendary actress and singer Judy Garland and her second husband, film director Vincente Minnelli.
Minnelli is from a well-known artistic family; her maternal lineage had entertainers in the family going back six generations. Her famous mother, Judy Garland, had success in film and in music, and her aunts had been part of a singing group, "The Gumm Sisters," with her mother. Her father, also from a theatrical family including circus performers, was an acclaimed film director. Minnelli's first film appearance was at the age of three in the final scene of the 1949 musical In the Good Old Summertime, starring her mother and Van Johnson.
Although Minnelli and her mother shared a warm personal relationship, during the London Palladium performances Garland recognized Minnelli's talent and felt a sense of competition. Minnelli recalled a time where she was singing on stage: "I was onstage with my mother, but suddenly, she wasn't Mamma ... she was Judy Garland."
As a teenager with two younger siblings, Minnelli bore the brunt of Garland's substance abuse issues and instability, and often had to take responsibility for her mother and siblings. Minnellis half-siblings through her mother are sister Lorna Luft and brother Joe "Joey" Luft. Her half-siblings are a result of Garland's marriage to her manager Sid Luft. She also has a half-sibling Tina Nina Minnelli through her father's second marriage.

Public life:
Her well-publicized struggles with substance abuse have made inevitable parallels and comparisons to her mother's personal and career challenges. Minnelli has been in rehab for her substance abuse numerous times. She nearly died from a bout of what was widely reported as encephalitis in 2000 after one rehab visit. Not everyone, however, was convinced that this disease, generally caused by mosquito or tick bites, was the true diagnosis. She entered rehab shortly before her marriage to Gest. Another visit occurred at their first anniversary; she recently visited rehab and a psychiatric center to deal with issues stemming from her contentious divorce from Gest.

Marriages:
Minnelli has been married (and divorced) four times; her husbands have been:
1. Peter Allen (real name Peter Allen Woolnough) (March 3, 19671972). Australian-born Allen, who died of complications from AIDS in 1992. Allen was Judy Garland's protg in the mid-1960s.
2. Jack Haley Jr., (September 15, 19741979), a producer and director. His father, Jack Haley, was Garland's co-star in The Wizard of Oz.
3. Mark Gero (December 4, 19791992), a sculptor and stage manager
4. David Gest (March 16, 2002July 25, 2003), a concert promoter.
Minnelli and Gest signed an agreement in January 2007 to end all pending lawsuits against each other, and to proceed with a no-fault divorce. The divorce papers were filed in February 2007. Separation and subsequent divorce from Gest in 2003 has been fraught with controversy; the two had legal disputes, which were all settled in January 2007. Prior legal matters were either resolved or dismissed.

Career:

Theatre:
Minnelli started performing (professionally) at age 17, in 1963, in an Off-Broadway revival of the musical Best Foot Forward, for which she received good notices, and her first award -- The Theatre World Award. The next year, her mother invited Minnelli to perform with her at the London Palladium. The audience loved her, launching her future concert career. She returned to Broadway at 19, and won a 1965 Tony Award for Flora the Red Menace.

Movies:
Her first film role was as the love-interest in Albert Finney's only film as director and star, Charlie Bubbles (1967).
In 1969 she appeared in Alan J. Pakulas first feature film, The Sterile Cuckoo (1969), as Pookie Adams, a needy, eccentric teenager. Her performance won her her first Academy Award nomination. She played another eccentric character the following year in Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon, directed by Otto Preminger. In 1972, Minnelli appeared in perhaps her best-known film role, as Sally Bowles in the movie version of Cabaret. Minnelli won the Best Actress Academy Award for her performance, along with a Golden Globe Award, and was featured on the covers of Time and Newsweek Magazines simultaneously.
Hot off the success of the movie, Fosse and Minnelli teamed up for what was to become a groundbreaking show in several departments. Liza with a Z, a filmed concert later aired only two times on TV until the somewhat accidental recovery from the vaults and first public release on DVD in 2006. In the concert, filmed over two performances, Minnelli danced and sang in several daring and censor-challenging costumes designed by famed costume-designer Halston. Several awards were the reward for what is regarded by both critics and public, a piece of show business history.
Following a string of less successful feature movies and ventures into television, she finally got the chance to work with her father, director Vincente Minnelli, in the 1976 fantasy-musical A Matter of Time, co-starring Ingrid Bergman. After severe editing and cutting, done at the request of the producers, the film was neither a commercial nor a critical success.
Her appearance opposite Robert De Niro in the 1977 film, New York, New York however, gave Minnelli her best known signature song, "Theme from New York, New York". Frank Sinatra released a successful cover version (for his Trilogy: Past Present Future album) two years later and used it as his signature song as well, sometimes even duetting with Liza live on stage.
After her performance as leading lady to Dudley Moore in 1981's Arthur, Minnelli made fewer film appearances.

Later career:
Minnellis career has been known to be filled with highs and lows, both personal and professional, however she has never stopped recording albums, even though in her later career these were mostly live recordings of her concerts, several of them highly acclaimed record-breaking stints at the Radio City Music Hall among others. In the beginnings however she recorded several studio albums, for A&M and Capitol Records. The Capitol albums "Liza! Liza!", "It Amazes Me" and "There Is A Time" have recently been reissued on a 2CD compilation, for the first time in their entirety. Her perhaps biggest success in the music department might be the 1989 pop album Results, recorded with English duo the Pet Shop Boys, which included a hit version of the Stephen Sondheim song "Losing My Mind". The album spawned 4 singles ("Don't Drop Bombs", "Losing My Mind", "Love Pains" and "So Sorry, I Said") and gave her a chance to film promotional videos for them and enjoy another long-overdue comeback in the music business. Initially released on a VHS tape titled "Visible Results", the clips were later issued on a bonus DVD included in the 2005 remastered and expanded edition of the album. Later that year she performed "Losing My Mind" live at the Grammys ceremony before receiving a Grammy Legend Award, making her one of only 12 other entertainers, in a list that includes Whoopi Goldberg, Barbra Streisand, and Mel Brooks among others, to win an Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and Academy Award, even though she is sometimes discounted since her Grammy was a special award and was not won in a competitive category.
She returned to Broadway in 1997, taking over the title role in the musical Victor/Victoria, replacing Julie Andrews. In his review, New York Times critic Ben Brantley commented, "her every stage appearance is perceived as a victory of show-business stamina over psychic frailty... She asks for love so nakedly and earnestly, it seems downright vicious not to respond." However, rumors of ill will between her and co-star Tony Roberts gained momentum when he deliberately skipped performances.
After a serious case of viral encephalitis in 2000, Minnelli was in very bad shape, her family and friends were seriously worried, and even a feud with half-sister Lorna was buried. Doctors predicted the rest of her life in a wheelchair. She however refused to accept this and thanks to her dance lessons, which she still takes daily, managed to achieve yet another comeback, with her then-husband who produced her big show "Liza's Back" in 2002.
After this success, the world was again made aware of Minnelli's entertainment capabilities and she kept on touring the world and had offers coming from several fields in the business. She had once again all doors open to her, the only thing that seems to escape her is another big movie role, with her last big mark on the silver screen being in 1981 in the comedy Arthur.
In 2004 and 2005 she appeared as a recurring character on the critically acclaimed TV sitcom Arrested Development as Lucille Austero, the lover of sexually and socially awkward Buster Bluth and also the lover of Buster's brother GOB Bluth.
In September 2006, she made a guest appearance on the long-running NBC drama Law & Order: Criminal Intent. The episode, written by Gina Gionfriddo, had a Halloween theme and was broadcast on Tuesday, October 31, 2006.[4] She also completed guest vocals on My Chemical Romance's 2006 concept album The Black Parade, portraying "Mother War," a dark conception of the main character's mother, in the song "Mama".
Her latest project is the imminent release of a collection of songs that her God-mother Kay Thompson originated. In 2007 she has added the songs to her latest tour to introduce them to audiences.
It has recently been announced that once she has completed the collection of songs that Kay Thompson originated and also her tour, she will begin filming Katie's Blues, which she is in negotiations with the writers of the movie musical Chicago in writing the script. Liza will write, produce and star in the film.

Signature song:
Minnelli had several notable public performances of her signature song, "New York, New York", some of them are:

* At the 1978 Studio 54 party honoring New York City's revival, at which a guest was Mayor Ed Koch;
* The reopening of the Statue of Liberty on July 4, 1986;
* As a duet with Luciano Pavarotti at the 1996 "Pavarotti & Friends" concert in Modena, Italy.
* At a 2001 New York Mets baseball game that was the metro area's first major sporting event after the September 11 attacks;
* At the age of 60, for the "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular" televised live, and nationally on NBC on July 4, 2006, she performed the song and received an ovation.

Awards and other recognitions:
Minnelli's appearance in The Sterile Cuckoo garnered the young actress her first Academy Award nomination.
In 1973, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for the movie released in 1972, Cabaret.
She also won an Emmy Award for the 1972 TV special Liza with a 'Z', a 1989 Grammy Legend Award, and Golden Globe Awards for both Cabaret and the 1985 TV movie A Time to Live.
She has received three Tony Awards to date: a Tony for Best Actress in a Musical in 1965 for "Flora the Red Menace" (and for it still holds the record as the youngest person to receive a Tony for lead in a musical), a special Tony in 1974 for her concert engagement at NY's Winter Garden, and a second Tony, for The Act in 1978. She was nominated in 1984 for The Rink but lost to her costar, Chita Rivera.
Minnelli has one Oscar and Emmy, three Tony Awards, along with a special Grammy. She has the distinction of being one of the few Academy Award winners whose parents were both Academy Award nominees, and she is the only winner of that award whose parents were both winners of it as well.

Image:
Minnelli's work in Cabaret molded her popular image; the black helmet of hair, huge eyes and extravagant eyelashes have remained her visual trademarks. The perception among many is that she embodies the same characteristics she portrayed as Sally Bowles's that is a combination of fragility, determination, detached from reality and hunger for affection. During the Eighties she softened her image and has kept it ever since. Today, still looking youthful, albeit with fluctuating weight and in spite of suffering severe health problems including having had both hips replaced, other surgeries and stints in rehab, her energetic performing style has not altered over 40 years. She stated herself she will keep on doing what she does best as long as her body allows her to. Her exuberance remains evident in her public appearances, most recently displayed in her interview session filmed for "Inside the Actors Studio" in which she provided insight into her career and style. Her later image is notable for big eyebrows, which has become something of a signature look for her, as much as the black helmet hair was in the 1970s.
