Katie Holmes Gives (Belated) Golden Globe To Queen Latifah

By David Chiu

Here's one star-studded Golden Globe presentation that was televised.

Katie Holmes dropped by BET's "106 & Park" Wednesday to present her "Mad Money" costar, Queen Latifah, with an award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

On Sunday, Latifah won the Globe for best performance by an actress in a mini-series or motion picture made for television for her role in the HBO film "Life Support." But because of the ongoing writers' strike, stars did not attend the bare-bones ceremony.

After handing out the trophy, the two actresses then showed a brief clip of their new comedy about three women who plan a heist of the Federal Reserve Bank. Asked about any on-set hiijinx, Holmes gushed: "Queen Latifah and [costar] Diane Keaton – I just laughed the whole time. They went at it!"

Holmes, who wore a black blouse, tight black pants and a sparkling chain, appeared in good spirits and smiled throughout the taping (slated to air Friday).

"She's so sweet and so humble," "106" cohost Rocsi told PEOPLE after the show. "It's the first time both of us got up close to meet her. It's so weird to be like, 'Okay, that's Tom Cruise's wife? That's Suri's mom?'"

Her cohost Terrence added that Holmes looked stunning. "She looks great on TV but she looks better in real life," he said. "It was delightful to meet her and we'd invite her back anytime.

After the promotional appearance, Holmes slipped back into mommy mode, taking Suri for a stroll through New York.

Later, she met up with her husband Tom Cruise, and the family headed out for a quiet dinner at Orsay restaurant.
