Halle Berry held hands with a friend as they left an event at the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills on Thursday night. The actress accessorized her low-key outfit with a giant emerald and diamond ring on her left hand — perhaps it was a Christmas present from her buddy Santa. She's just wrapped up a fun holiday season with her daughter Nahla that even included some warm weather beach time. Halle is expected to trade her bikinis for a gown in order to hit the red carpet at next week's Golden Globes, where she's nominated in the best actress category for her role in Frankie and Alice — don't forget to fill out Buzz's Golden Globe ballot for your chance to win $1,000! Halle's also been named as a presenter at this year's Academy Awards, but we'll have to wait until Jan. 25 to find out if she's earned another Oscar nomination.
