The ‘Stranger Things’ Kids Basically Won The Emmys Last Night

Last night, The Emmys celebrated all-things small screen with the annual awards show at the Microsoft Theater. Game of Thrones made history for the most Emmy awards of all time, and Sarah Paulson finally got her first Emmy award for Lead Actress In A Limited Series with her outstanding performance as Marcia Clark in The People Vs. OJ Simpson.

But let’s get real. The whole awards show was basically irrelevant because the kids from Stranger Things showed up and were a major distraction to everyone and everything.

The Stranger Things Emmy takeover started early, when they brought basically the best red carpet game Hollywood’s ever seen.

And wore sick threads like it was no big deal.

That’s Gaten Matarazzo in a gingham waistcoat, Caleb McLaughlin in a silver rose embellished dinner jacket, and Millie Bobby Brown in Red Valentino, slaying. (Matarazzo: “I just went to this place and got this tux.”)

Then they sang Uptown Funk for the pre-show entertainment while guests were taking their seats.

Millie’s brother was pretty proud.

Then they had some fun with the Stranger Things Snapchat filters..

And had several mutual fangirling moments with their celebrity fanbase.

Then Jimmy Kimmel came onstage and told everyone his mum had made sandwiches, and the Stranger Things kids were going to distribute them. IN COSTUME!

They rode bicycles!

This row was definitely upset to be served by Jimmy instead of Eleven.

Here’s a gif of Eleven giving Ross Geller a sandwich.

The bags contained cookies, juice and a note from Jimmy’s mum.

In conclusion, the Stranger Things cast are #SquadGoals.

Bring on Season Two!
