Ryan Gosling needed a little help with his bow-tie from Meryl Streep at last night's SAG Awards
Meryl Streep shared a tender moment with the La La Land actor as he leaned in to allow her to fuss over his crooked tie as they prepared to take their seats at the 23rd annual ceremony.
The 67-year-old Oscar-winning actress seemed more than happy to perform this duty as she beamed afterwards posing for a picture with the dapper star.
Ryan Gosling, 36, was up for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role in a Motion Picture award for his part in the critically acclaimed La La Land, but lost out to Fence's Denzel Washington.
Meryl missed out on the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor award to Ryan's co-star, Emma Stone, who won for her stunning performance as La La Land's leading lady.
Emma made sure all eyes were on her as she attended the SAG Awards in a sheer, lingerie-inspired gown, her trademark auburn locks swept to one side for a classic Hollywood look.

Other than Ryan's adorable moment with the Florence Foster Jenkins star, the evening was dominated by an air of defiance against President Donald Trump's recent actions to temporarily ban visitors and refugees from several predominantly Muslim countries from entering the US.
Host Ashton Kutcher opened the awards with a pro-immigration message, setting the tone for the rest of the night: "Good evening, fellow SAG-AFTRA members, and everyone at home, and everyone in airports that belong in my America," he said.
"You are a part of the fabric of who we are. And we love you and we welcome you."
Many of the SAG Awards acceptance speeches took aim at Trump's ban on refugees, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won her second SAG Award for her role in the political satire series Veep.
"I want you all to know that I am the daughter of an immigrant. My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France," she said.

Dreyfus went on to declare her love for America, before condemning Trump's policy, saying: "Because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes and this immigrant ban is a blemish and it's un-American."
Later in the evening, Orange Is the New Black star Taylor Schilling and Mahershala Ali, who won the Best Supporting Actor award for his part in Moonlight both emphasised messages of unity in the face of division.
The cast of Hidden Figures took the night's main award, Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture, for their portrayal of the untold story of three African American women working at NASA who helped put the first men in space.
Hidden Figures star Taraji P. Henson took to the stage to accept the award, saying: "This story is of unity. This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins. Every time."
