After their Netflix TV series became a huge hit, the kids of Stranger Things have taken over the WWW. It's no surprise because they're not just talented, they're super funny, too! And at tonight's Emmy Awards, they've proven that they can slay absolutely anything. Here are 3 moments when Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Caleb Mclaughlin (Lucas), and Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) scored a win for Stranger Things.

  1. They slayed their red carpet looks.


The boys looking dapper as ever in their stylin' suits and Millie rocking a pretty frock. How can you not love these three?

  1. They performed "Uptown Funk" at the pre-show.

We know they can sing but they definitely wowed with their fun performance. We're almost sad that their showstopping number isn't going to be televised! Thank goodness for everyone who snapped and uploaded the cute moment on the internet!

  1. They gave away PB & J sandwiches for everyone!

Emmys host Jimmy Kimmel's mom made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for everyone and Caleb, Gaten, and Millie helped out by distributing them as their Stranger Things characters on bikes. So cute!
