!! [[WebVideo/{{Awkward}} The web series]]:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The 'Miss Brighteyes' musical number at the end of Awkward 3. It could be removed entirely without impacting the rest of the series... But it is [[RuleOfFunny fucking hilarious]].
* HeartwarmingMoments: [[spoiler:Lester and Alex making up and Alex standing up to Jermaine]] in Awkward 6. Awwwww.
* MomentOfAwesome: Awkward 6: [[spoiler:Alex standing up to Jermaine and Kevin showing up out of nowhere so they and Lester can "take out the trash."]]
* {{Moe}}: Kevin is dangerously close. The DoggedNiceGuy thing helps.
* NarmCharm: Lester's M&Ms speech and Kevin's 'I like weird' bit edge into corny, but they're all the sweeter for it.
* OneSceneWonder: Alex's unnamed blind date, who threatens him in Korean and beats the snot out of him.
* {{Squick}}:
** Alex claims to have seasoned Lester's popcorn with [[spoiler:his own semen]]. He claims to be joking, but with Alex it's hard to tell...
** The second season trailer reveals Kevin is squicked by sex with zombies, while Lester and Alex are squicked by sex with someone covered in leeches.

!! [[Series/{{Awkward}} The MTV series]]:

* AwesomeMoments: S1 finale when Val, having had enough of Sadie's shit, dumps a bowl of punch all over her, then delivers an IronicEcho of something Sadie said a minute earlier.
** Ming gets two in S3E9 -- first, she punches Becca in the face after her crossing the line with getting Fred Wu in trouble at school, and then later having the rest of the "Asian Mafia" actually bow to her for what she did.
** Matty telling off Eva in the mid-season premiere of Season 4.
* BaseBreaker: Jenna with her constant indecisiveness.
* BrokenBase: The Season 2 finale split the fans regarding Jenna's choice and the PairTheSpares move.
* ClicheStorm: While some may say that the show is better than it sounds, others see it as just another crappy teen show. YMMV on this for sure.
* CrackPairing: "Once Upon a Blog" features several AU's where these exist, mainly [[HoYay Matty/Jake]] and Matty/Ming.
* HoYay: Matty and Jake have this at such power that the show itself {{Lampshade}}d it no less than three times.
* HollywoodHomely: Jenna and Tamara somehow have had difficulty attracting guys.
* HollywoodPudgy: Fan reaction to Creator/AshleyRickards' weight gain between Seasons 1 and 2.
* SeasonalRot: Set in starting Season 4, since creator Creator/LaurenIungerich left the show.
* TearJerker: When Jenna sees Matty kissing another girl in the hot tub. Then one season later when [[spoiler:Jake sees Jenna and Matty kissing in her bed.]] The look on their faces in both scenarios gets you.
** Jenna singing the lullaby to her mom can definitely count as one of the (if not the) biggest tearjerking moments in the series thus far.
* TheWoobie: Jenna, and to a certain degree, Lissa.
** It's hard not to feel bad for Lacey after [[spoiler:the whole school reads Jenna's blog and starts to call her nonstop with hostile words]]. Could be JerkassWoobie for some, especially considering she really should have known better than to make it open for the public to read and just assume that [[WhatAnIdiot nobody from her school would ever come across it]].
