And the Oscars thought they had it bad.
A fake Ryan Gosling took to the stage to accept an award for La La Land at the Goldene Kamera Awards in Germany, and the resemblance was obviously pitiful.
The ceremony's host had excitedly announced to the audience - which included Nicole Kidman, Jane Fonda and Colin Farrell - that although the musical's director Damien Chazelle couldn't be there, they had "one of the hottest stars in Hollywood" on hand to collect a prize for the film on his behalf.
"The director couldn't be here today so but someone else agreed to take the award, and we are so glad because he is the reason the movie is a success," presenter Steven Gaetjendeclared.
"And he is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood... Men hold onto your wives, and wives hold onto your men...Here is the one and only, Ryan Gosling!"
The stage doors opened to reveal not Ryan Gosling, but a cook from Munich called Ludwig Lehner.
Gosling would never wear a tux like that.
"Good evening," Lehner addresses the confused crowd. "I am Ryan Gosling. There is a saying in Hamburg... Bye Bye."
He then turns and walks off stage awkwardly as a couple of audience members clap, before the camera pans across the attendees' stunned faces.
Gaetjen can then be seen returning to the stage to apologise for whatever the hell that was, saying: "A very interesting thing happened, and that is why we are live."
It was later reported comedians Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf were responsible for the stunt, deciding to create their very own Oscar Best Picture embarrassment by setting up a fake agency and pretending that they could book Gosling for the event.
But only on the condition that Gosling could get up on stage and win something.
Colin Farrell's face sums it all up.
