English term or phrase: Awkward!
WHEN Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes announced their divorce last year, tabloid journalists fell over themselves to point out that they had seen it coming. "Just look at their body language!" the headlines screamed, above shots of Holmes frowning while holding Cruise at arm's length. "Awkward!"

I'm not sure. I think the adjective discribes Katie's behavior. she was frwoning while holding Crouse arm. The the hournalist "Awkward" and based on this they cliam they had understood the problem at that time. I think "چه ناراحت" is better. Of course it's my opinion!

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for your help. I think ناراحت كننده is better. Because it is the body language which is awkward.

neutral  Alireza Amini: You are right if it refers to people it means ناراحت but here I suppose it refers to the situation...
3 hrs
  -> The situation is that the couple wants to get divorce. How could it be awkward? Or another possibility is the Katie was frowning. Could it be awkward?
