The Netflix show's beloved child stars — Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo — looked dashing on the red carpet, entertained the audience before the show started by lip-syncing "Uptown Funk," and helped host Jimmy Kimmel hand out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to hungry celebs during the ceremony.
And TVGuide.com found out that even some Emmy nominees were obsessed with Stranger Things. We asked stars like Modern Family's Sarah Hyland, The People v. O.J. Simpson creators Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski and Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts what was the last show they binge-watched, and they all said the same thing: Stranger Things.
"You can't stop watching it!" Hyland says.
"The children are the most talented children that I have seen in a very, very long time," said American Crime actor Trevor Jackson. "I just saw them walk by and I fangirled, like 'Guys, listen, I'm sorry, I know it's crazy, but I love you, I love you, I love you, can we hug?'"
Watts had a quibble with the way the kids played Dungeons & Dragons, but Chief Hopper (David Harbour) set him straight. Like, c'mon, Reggie, Stranger Things has done more for Dungeons & Dragons than anyone besides Dan Harmon. No need to nitpick.
And I'm sure at the next Emmys, everyone will be talking about Stranger Things Season 2.
