Depp, Thurman shine at 2004 MTV Movie Awards

MUMBAI: It was a night when a former female assassin seeking bloody revenge, a roguish pirate and hobbits triumphed. At a gliittering ceremony MTV revealed the winners of the 2004 MTV Movie Awards.

Uma Thurman won for her role in Kill Bill. Volume 1. Her nemesis in the film Lucy Liu won in the villain category. Johnny Depp took home a trophy for Best Male Performance for his role as a swashbuckler in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. For the third consecutive year The Lord of the Rings franchise took the top prize of best film for its latest installment The Return of the King.

The festivities took place at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City California. Eminem, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Beastie Boys gave over-the-top performances

The opening hip-hop dance number kicked off an evening full of surprises. Lohan showed off her dance moves along with Marques Houston and Omarion from the film You Got Served. They played up the fact that Lohan was the youngest host in the show's history. Andy Richter and Rachel Dratch played her over-protective parents.

A short film "pitch meeting" featuring Starsky & Hutch's Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and LOTR director Peter Jackson left the crowd rolling in the aisles. Stiller and Vaughn tried to convince Jackson to make LOTR 4.

The event was also used to promote upcoming attractions in a unique manner. Throughout the show there were a series of funny short films. These were inspired by the upcoming Will Ferrell comedy Anchorman and Lohan's Mean Girls. The final short film of the evening featured a campy take-off of the film Kill Bill Volume 2.

The evening also had a big tongue 'n' cheek wink to the gay community. Kirsten Dunst appeared with Spiderman to present the award for the best film. Spiderman turned out to be Ellen DeGeneres.

The show will be seen in 166 ountries/territories and in 18 languages in over 401.8 million households. 7UP, Taco Bell, Johnson & Johnson, Pontiac, L'Oreal and Virgin Wireless sponsored the show.
