The 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards belonged to the kids of Stranger Things.

After charming A-listers throughout the winter award season, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp and Finn Wolfhard stole the show yet again Sunday night at The Shrine Auditorium in L.A. Throughout the night, the young stars managed to meet stars like Cara Delevingne, Josh Gad, Hugh Jackman and Emma Watson. Stranger Things won two of its four nominations: Show of the Year and Best Actor in a Show (Brown).

Brown, who was the first to collect an award, burst into tears as she delivered her acceptance speech. "First of all, I want to thank everyone who voted, and especially MTV. I'd like to thank Netflix, Ian Paterson and Dan Cohen. I want to thank the cast and crew for being my second family. You guys, I love you. I want to thank my family. Paige, Charlie, Ava: You give me light every day and I love you guys. My mom and dad for being so supportive." After thanking her publicists, her manager and her agents, Brown gave props to director Shawn Levy and series creators Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer. "I want to thank the Duffer brothers. They've created a badass, female character that I've got the honor to play. Thank you guys so much. I love you."

After walking offstage, Brown snapped a photo with Baywatch's Alexandra Daddario and Zac Efron. "Always fan boy out too much 11's around," Efron wrote on Instagram. "Great to run into the #StrangerThings crew—even BETTER—handing @milliebobbybrown her [Golden Popcorn]."

Later in the show, the younger cast members—joined by co-stars Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery and Shannon Purser—appeared onstage to accept the Show of the Year award; the cast of Netflix's latest hit series 13 Reasons Why presented the actors with the honor. "We want to thank everyone so much," Brown said onstage. "I would like to thank you guys for awarding us Best Show of the Year." Acknowledging how "crazy" the momentous win was, Wolfhard said, "I guess I want to thank the Duffer brothers for creating this show and writing this show and creating this show out of nothing, or else none of us would be here. So, thank you to them. And to Shawn Levy, our director and amazing producer—you've taught us so much. And Dan Cohen and Ian Paterson and everyone, they treated us like true collaborators—not just little kids."

"Thank you to Netflix. Where would we be without Netflix? Like, literally!" McLaughlin said as the entire arena laughed. "When you're having a bad day, what do you do when you go home?"

"Also, where would we be without our parents?" Matarazzo said. "Because we would not be here—quite literally. I mean, thank you to them. They're all so supportive. I love my whole family, my friends. Thank you guys so much. I love you! I love my parents and my whole family."

Schnapp was the last to speak and made sure to thank the viewers who had made Stranger Things such a phenomenon. "Without you guys, we wouldn't be here right now, standing here today," Schnapp said. "So thank you for all the support and love you've given us. We love you!"
