"Liza May Minnelli" is an American actress and singer best known for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in the 1972 musical film Cabaret (1972 film)/Cabaret which won her an Academy Award for Best Actress.

Born to film actress and singer Judy Garland (1922–1969) and film director Vincente Minnelli (1903–1986), Liza Minnelli never went on to become a child or teenage star. In her teens, she started as a musical theatre actress, nightclub performer and recording artist in New York City. Critically lauded for her dramatic performance in the film The Sterile Cuckoo (1969), she rose to international stardom with Cabaret and the Emmy Awards/Emmy Award-winning TV special Liza with a Z (1972). Her next three film projects got mixed reviews and failed commercially, and she had no major movie hit until the 1981 comedy Arthur (1981 film)/Arthur. She successfully returned to Broadway stage starring the musical The Act (musical)/The Act.
