Liza Minnelli is the only Oscar winner in history whose parents, Judy Garland (Best Supporting Actress in 1939) and director/producer Vincente Minnelli (Best Director in 1945), were also Oscar winners. She took home the Best Actress prize in 1978 for her performance in Cabaret.

Liza Minnelli is one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars, having been nominated for six Golden Globes and three Academy Awards. But even though she has earned five Oscar nominations — including best actress for her performance in 1967’s “Cabaret,” she has never actually won an award. In fact, it took her until age 72 to finally take home the golden statue for best supporting actress for her work in 2018’s “The Lord of Tears.” But while Minnelli hasn’t ever taken home an Oscar, her father did. Vincent Minnelli, who directed her in films like 1953’s “Gigi” and 1955’s “The Bad Seed,” won his first Oscar for directing 1956’s “Some Came Running.” He went on to earn another four awards during his career, including his final nod for 1959’s “An American in Paris.”
And Liza Minnelli’s mother, Frances Gumm, won the Academy Juvenile Award for playing Dorothy Gale in 1939’s “Wizard of Oz.” She was just 18 when she accepted the honor, making her the youngest person to receive such an accolade. Her husband, director Vincente Minnelli, was the co-nominee for the award.
List of Academy Award-winning families
The Academy Awards are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). AMPAS was founded in 1927 as part of the American Federation of Radio Artists (AFRA), at a meeting held at AFRA headquarters in New York City. At the time, radio was considered entertainment media rather than a true art form. In 1929, AFRA changed its name to the Academy of Motion Picture arts and Sciences. A year later, the organization established the annual Academy Awards ceremony as we know it today.
In addition to honoring achievements in film, the Oscars recognize excellence in many different aspects of filmmaking, including production design, cinematography, editing, sound mixing, makeup and hairstyling, costume design, score composition, live action short films, documentary feature films, animated short films, visual effects, screenwriting and acting.
Academy Awards are awarded based on votes received from members of the academy. Members vote via mail ballot every spring, and the ballots must be postmarked by June 30th. Ballots are counted at the Academy’s Los Angeles office during ceremonies held each February.
Since 1934, the Academy Awards have been given out in 24 categories. Each category has a set number of nominees; there are no “wildcard” nominations. Winners receive trophies engraved with the Oscar statuette, along with a $30,000 cash prize ($40,000 in 2016).
Winners are announced on the evening of the awards show, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. The event airs live on ABC, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
The Academy Awards are one of Hollywood’s oldest and most prestigious honors, having first been handed out in 1929. There are three main reasons why the Oscars are so special: They are voted on by thousands of people within the industry, they are given out once per year, and they are broadcast live on national television.
There are a few notable exceptions to this rule. For instance, when Alfred Hitchcock won his fifth Best Director award in 1955, he became the first director ever to win five times. And in 2012, the Oscars went completely digital, allowing attendees to use their mobile devices to view the show.
The Academy Awards are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). AMPAS was founded in 1927 as a nonprofit organization of film professionals “to honor and encourage artistry in cinema.” The Oscars ceremony was held on February 26, 1929 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, hosted by comedian Will Rogers.
Since then, the annual awards show has become one of the biggest cultural events of the year, and it attracts millions of people worldwide. The Oscars are overseen by CEO Dawn Hudson and President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. They work closely with the branch heads around the world, who run each category. The Academy also works with several committees and subcommittees to help develop Oscar categories, presenters and rules.
This year, there were 2,828 submissions in total, with 597 feature films counted among them. There were 817 eligible sound recordings, and 756 eligible short films. A record number of entries were submitted in the Best Documentary Feature category (136), while the Animated Short Subject category received the second highest amount ever, with 103 submissions. In addition to the regular categories, the Academy introduced five new ones, including the Best Popular Film Category, which replaced both the previous award for Best Foreign Language Film and the former award for Best Live Action Short Film.
There were nine acting nominees in the Best Actor category, eight actresses in the Best Actress category and seven actors in the Best Supporting Actor category. There were four women nominated for Best Director, and the same number of directors in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. Only four writers were nominated in the Best Writing category, and none were nominated in the Best Original Score category.
In terms of technical categories, there were six nominees in the Best Cinematography category, 10 in the Best Sound Mixing category, 11 in the Best Visual Effects category and 13 in the Best Editing category. The winner in the Best Production Design category went to Black Panther, while the Best Makeup & Hairstyling and Best Costume Design categories had no nominations.
The Sherman Brothers shared all their nominees and awards. The Coen brothers have revealed all of their nominations and 12 of their nominations; each received an individual nomination under the pseudonym Roderick J. Allen. De Havilland and Fontaine are the only sibling pairs to have both won lead actress awards, and the only pairs of sisters to have awards.
De Havilland and Fontayne are the only twin actresses who have been nominated for best actress twice, and the only set of twins to have both wins.
There are three sets of twins among the nominees: the Coens, the Sherman Brothers and the De Havillands.
The only other siblings to be nominated together are the Coens and the De Havilland family.
