The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards weren’t too scandalous, until someone noticed that Tina Fey suffered a wardrobe malfunction on Sunday night at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. It was so subtle that most people who watched the awards show didn’t even notice it. Some sharp-eyed viewers did catch the wardrobe malfunction, and it wasn’t long before “Tina Fey nip slip” turned into a trending topic.
The “30 Rock” creator took the stage with fellow writer Tracey Wigfield to accept the award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series when her breast fell out of place. Fey, 43, was accepting the microphone from Wigfield when her cobalt blue Narcisco Rodriguez halter gown popped in the flight, ever so slightly, and barely exposed part of her bosom. It seems double-stick tape might not always work.
Once Fey took the microphone, she quipped that no one allowed for Wigfield to speak, and then she praised the writer for encouraging her to work harder.
Earlier in the ceremony, Fey and Amy Poehler sat in the front row and heckled host Neil Patrick Harris as they ate popcorn with 3-D glasses on. The two hassled the “How I Met Your Mother” star, with Poehler screaming, “Take your pants off!” Then Fey added, "And twerk it. I come to award shows for the twerking."
When Harris questioned why the pair was wearing 3-D glasses she responded, “So I can see your business up close," Fey quipped. "Yo NPH, take those pants off," Poehler then joined in. "America wants to see what you're working with!"

But NPH wasn’t willing to oblige the funny ladies. "No, I'm not going to do that. That would be degrading," he said.
But the two made the audience laugh once more when they fell on the stairs to the stage later in the show.
