When you're born the daughter of Judy Garland, as Liza Minnelli was, singing, dancing and acting are not casual pursuits. If you didn't inherit mama's pipes, don't bother. Good news for Liza, whose father was the director Vincente Minnelli -- the young performer proved to have a world-class singing voice, and the dance and acting chops to make a splash in Hollywood. Her Best Actress Oscar for Cabaret, nomination for The Sterile Cuckoo, and Emmy accolades for several performance specials all suggest that the daughter was born to follow in her mother's footsteps.
