"I decided to forgo stylists and just go as myself," Ryder explained of her understated, elegant black dress, which she chose from her own closet, adding that her jewelry belonged to her grandmother, and she wore a ring in honor of late actor John Hurt.

"I just wanted to be me," she said.

The Stranger Things star is nominated at Sunday's awards show for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series (co-star Millie Bobby Brown is also nominated in the category), as well as with the cast of the Netflix series for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series -- but if you think Ryder was ready to spill secrets about the show's highly-anticipated second season, think again.

"I think all I'm allowed to say is that it’s one year later," Ryder confessed. "I know that's so unsatisfying!"

After a little more prodding, the actress mustered up a few more cryptic details -- "1984. Very key. Very Orwellian. Aftermath." -- and confirmed Sean Astin's part in season two.

"I'm so nervous I'm gonna get [draws finger across throat]!" Ryder explained.
