Oscars: Halle Berry, Women in Film toast female nominees

February 26, 2011 |  8:54 pm

Halle Berry and Cathy Schulman President of Women In Film Halle Berry brought some girl power to Oscar weekend, hosting a cocktail reception Friday for all the female Academy Awards nominees.

At Soho House, Berry joined forces with Cathy Schulman of Women in Film, nabbing the likes of Melissa Leo, Amy Adams and Hailee Steinfeld -- all of whom are up for gold trophies Sunday.

Though Berry may be embattled in her personal life, she showed no signs of it on this rainy evening, looking lovely in a cocktail dress and bling, rubbing elbows with Kate Walsh, Jackie Weaver of "Animal Kingdom," Brenda Song, Dale Dickey and Sharon Lawrence, to name a few.

Berry spoke to the crowd on the importance of "women holding each other up" and continuing to make creative strides in Hollywood -- the actress herself recently starred in and produced the drama "Frankie and Alice."
