What do Sean Spicer, Stephen Colbert, and Oprah Winfrey all have in common? They hung out with Young Sheldon star Iain Armitage at the Emmys.

The nine-year-old was one of the biggest winner’s on Sunday night — and that’s not even factoring in that Big Little Lies, which he starred in as rumored troublemaker Ziggy Chapman, won for Outstanding Limited Series.

During the show, Armitage, who plays young Sheldon Cooper in the upcoming Big Bang Theory spin-off, presented the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series alongside the adult Cooper portrayer, Jim Parsons. But, the actor’s best moments came behind-the-scenes as Armitage documented his experience on Twitter.

Among the highlights were an adorable rehearsal outfit; reuniting with his Big Little Lies mom, Shailene Woodley; hanging with the “tall” Mr. Billy Eichner; meeting “interesting people” like Spicer; and getting up close and personal with Winfrey.

See a recap of Armitage’s eventful evening below.

Young Sheldon premieres Sept. 25 at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
