Liza Minnelli is an American actress and singer who began her acting career in musical theatre and gained recognition after becoming the youngest recipient of the 'Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical' for 'Flora the Red Menace' in 1965. She earned critical acclaim for her starring role in the comedy-drama film 'The Sterile Cuckoo' (1969) and earned international fame for her 'Academy Award'-winning role as Sally Bowles in the 1972 musical film 'Cabaret'. She also won the 'Emmy Award' for her TV special, 'Liza with a Z' (1972).
Her later filmography mostly consisted of moderately successful films or utter failures, such as 'Lucky Lady' (1975), 'A Matter of Time' (1976), 'New York, New York' (1977), 'Rent-a-Cop' (1988), 'Arthur 2: On the Rocks' (1998), 'Stepping Out' (1991) and 'The Oh in Ohio' (2006). However, the 1981 romantic comedy 'Arthur' became a critical and commercial success.
She appeared on many television shows, musical specials, and made-for-television movies like 'A Time to Live' (1985) and 'Parallel Lives' (1994). She also hosted the show 'That's Entertainment!' in 1974. More recently, she earned praise for her guest role as Lucille Austero in the sitcom 'Arrested Development' between 2003 and 2013.
