Turns out there is hope for us all as even Ryan Gosling can find his bowtie all askew and in need of a helping hand. That said, for most of us it's unlikely to be Meryl Streep doing the honours.

Last night's annual 2017 SAG Awards saw the actress greet Gosling with a kiss before she promptly fixing his slightly wonky attire.

The internet, of course, lapped it up.

Gosling had been up for Outstanding Male Actor for his role in Damien Chazelle's acclaimed musical La La Land, but eventually lost out to Fences star (and director) Denzel Washington.

Streep - nominated for her turn in Florence Foster Jenkins - lost out to Gosling's co-star Emma Stone for Outstanding Female Actor.

Stone dedicated the award to director Chazelle and Gosling, who she called "the best". The actress also thanked fellow nominees "Meryl, Amy [Adams], Natalie [Portman], Emily [Blunt] you all inspire me beyond… I mean you're just the greatest. And your intelligence and talent are mind-blowing."

The award ceremony inevitably turned political as its presenters, nominees and winners took the opportunity to condemn Donald Trump's current controversial immigration ban.

Outstanding Female Actor in a Comedy Series for Veep Julia Louis-Dreyfus accepted her award and told the audience: "I want you all to know, I am the daughter of an immigrant.

"My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, and I'm an American patriot and I love this country, and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes. This immigrant ban is a blemish and it is un-American."

Moonlight's Mahershala Ali who won Supporting Male Actor, added: "When we kind of get caught up in the minutia, the details that make us all different, and there's two ways of seeing that.

"There's an opportunity to see the texture of that person, the characteristics that make them unique. And there's an opportunity to go to war about it, and to say that person is different from me, and I don't like you, so let's battle."

Other winners of the night included Fences' Viola Davis, The Crown's Claire Foy and John Lithgow, and the ensemble cast of Netflix's Stranger Things.
