Barb And Eleven From 'Stranger Things' Got Emmy Nominations Today And Freaked

By Jaime Lutz

The Emmy nominations announced this morning officially made history. Two of the omnipresent Stranger Things kids got nominated for Emmys this year, and one of them—13-year-old Millie Bobby Brown—is the youngest Primetime Emmy nominee in a drama category ever. She's the youngest actor to be nominated, period, since a 6-year-old Keisha Knight Pulliam got a nomination for playing Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show in 1986. She'll be going after the Best Supporting Actress award, though, come on—Eleven is kind of the lead, right?

20-year-old Shannon Purser, who played the tragically murdered Barb on Stranger Things, may not technically be a kid—but she's also the youngest actor to be nominated in her category by about 13 years (in fact, the oldest nominee in her category, Cicely Tyson, is 92!).
