The SAG Awards are rapidly approaching, and along with the red carpet looks and getting ready selfies, this awards show also boasts some super chic kids.

Of course this won't be the first time we've seen kiddos at the SAG Awards. Who could forget the adorable Jacob Tremblay living his best life last year, presenting an award to British heartthrob Idris Elba and taking selfies with Leo DiCaprio? This year, the show will be stacked with an under-eighteen crowd that's honestly cooler than any we've seen before. Who would have thought that after spending our adolescent lives dreaming of the day we'd graduate from the kids' table at family functions, that we'd be willing the give it all up for the chance to rub elbows with the likes of Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things?

Aside from the overwhelming urge to squeal at their cuteness (Marsai Martin is legitimately the cutest human we've ever seen), the young talent at this year's SAG Awards is giving us serious age envy. Take us back to childhood!

Keep scrolling for a look at all the young stars who could be in attendance this year!

Hibbert delivered an electrifying performance alongside veteran actors Naomie Harris, Mahershala Ali and Janelle Monae in Moonlight, which is nominated for the Outstanding Cast in a Motion Picture award. If his acting chops are any indication of his real personality, this little guy is probably more interesting than most fully formed adults!

These towheaded kiddos star as two of the quirky offspring of Viggo Mortensen's character in Captain Fantastic, which is also nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award. From the looks of it, filming this movie must have been a blast, but also quite odd, so these two probably have tons of interesting tidbits to share over dinner. Not to mention that Crooks also starred in American Horror Story: Hotel and likely has some fascinating insights from working with the ever elusive Lady Gaga!

If there's one cast that's killing awards season, it's the crew from Stranger Things. From dancing on stage together at this year's Emmy Awards, to delivering the most fire group shot ever on the Golden Globes red carpet, these kids have proven that they know how to have a good time. We can't wait to see what kind of shenanigans Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown and Noah Schnapp (not pictured) will be up to this time!

The level of sass delivered by this group of young actors clearly has a lot to do with their show's nomination for the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series award this year. And if their real life behavior is even half as hilarious as that of their on-screen personas, then Marsai Martin, Yara Shahidi, Miles Brown and Marcus Scribner are bound to be a delight to anyone lucky enough to cross their paths this Sunday.

Anderson-Emmons's Modern Family character Lily Tucker-Pritchett is honestly life goals. She says whatever she wants and gets away with it, because her cutting wit just leaves adults straight puzzled. Since the show has been so heavily celebrated on the awards circuit over the years (including a SAG nomination for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series this year), this little lady is now a pro when it come to glam nights out. She probably has a tip or two for the newbies.
