One might say that Liza Minnelli was destined from birth to become Ms. Show Business. She’s one of only 12 people ever to have won a Grammy, an Emmy, a Tony and an Academy Award, and the only Oscar-winning offspring of parents – Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli – who were both Oscar-winners. Ira Gershwin and Kay Thompson were her godparents. She appeared in her first movie at age 3 and hasn’t really stopped performing since. In 1965, at age 19, she became the youngest person ever to win a Best Actress Tony, for Flora the Red Menace. “New York, New York” was her song before it was ever Frank Sinatra’s. And her slightly kinky characterization of Sally Bowles in the 1972 film Cabaret is absolutely iconic.
