The kids from just about everyone’s favorite summer Netflix series “Stranger Things” may have made themselves favorites of the Emmy audience on Sunday when they helped Jimmy Kimmel hand out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in brown bags to the stars in attendance.
Kimmel figured the stars would be hungry “after not having eaten since Labor Day,” so he decided to deputize his mom to prepare thousands of peanut butter and grape jelly sandwiches on wheat bread. The kids from “Stranger Things” (Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin) came out on bicycles to hand the meals out to stars from Anthony Anderson to David Schwimmer.
The host also had to poke fun at Hollywood’s stereotypical dietary restriction during the Emmys bit, asking the those in the crowd with gluten allergies to identify themselves. Anderson’s “Black-ish” co-star Tracee Ellis Ross was one of them.
“Which one of you has a gluten allergy?” Kimmel asked, before telling those watching at home that he only posed that question so they would know which of their favorite stars are difficult — in so many words.
And touching on the controversy surrounding the escalating costs of a certain anti-allergic reaction medication, Kimmel told any of the attendees who might be allergic to peanuts to be careful.
“We can only afford one Epi-Pen,” he said.
