Story highlights

  • The junior cast members of "Stranger Things" attended the Emmys
  • They also performed before the show

(CNN)The young stars of "Stranger Things" weren't nominated for Emmys this year, but that didn't stop them from having the time of their lives at the awards show.

Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin who star in the Netflix-original drama series, in fact were the darlings of Sunday night's red carpet.
    The trio also had a moment that most of the audience did not get to see.
    They performed Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' hit song "Uptown Funk" during an untelevised portion of the Emmy's ceremony.
    During the show, they handed out lunch bags with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made by host Jimmy Kimmel's mother, Joan.
    "So my mother made 7,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches," Kimmel said. "Is anyone hungry right now?"
    The bags also included a note from Kimmel's mom that read, "Have fun tonight! Win or lose your mom will always love you. Don't get drunk."
