Kill Bill And Return Of The King Win At Mtv Awards

KILL BILL: VOL 1 and THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING took home most of the major honours at the MTV MOVIE AWARDS in Los Angeles last night (05JUN04).

UMA THURMAN won Best Female Performance and LUCY LIU was named Best Villain for their roles in QUENTIN TARANTINO's Kill Bill: Vol 1.

The revenge epic was also awarded the Best Fight prize, for the clash between Thurman's character and schoolgirl CHYIAKI KURIYAMA.

A grateful Thurman praised Tarantino as she collected the award: "Quentin spent many years writing this for me and wants to be honoured as if he were dead tonight.

"We don't have time, so I'll have to honour you as if you were living. Thank you, Quentin."

The Return Of The King, the third film in director PETER JACKSON's blockbusting Lord Of The Rings trilogy, won Best Movie and Best Action Sequence.

Elsewhere, JOHNNY DEPP's part in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL was voted Best Male Performance, and JACK BLACK won the Comedic Performance award for SCHOOL OF ROCK.

LINDSAY LOHAN took home Breakthrough Female for FREAKY FRIDAY, and X2's SHAWN ASHMORE won Breakthrough Male.

Best Kiss went to the smooch shared between OWEN WILSON, AMY SMART and CARMEN ELECTRA in STARSKY + HUTCH, while ADAM SANDLER and DREW BARRYMORE were named the Best Onscreen Team for their partnership in 50 FIRST DATES.

Superstars including TOM CRUISE and SNOOP DOGG presented awards at the glitzy bash, which is to be screened on MTV this Thursday (10JUN04).
