See winners

The MTV Movie Awards mocks the year in movies as much as it celebrates it. But this year, the cabler followed the Oscars, giving its top movie prize to “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” on Saturday night.

Uma Thurman won the female performance trophy for “Kill Bill Vol. 1.”

Johnny Depp took the male performance prize for “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” and Jack Black garnered the nod for comedy perf for “School of Rock.”

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler earned the onscreen team kudos for offbeat amnesiac romance “50 First Dates.”

Other winners included Lucy Liu’s head-chopping assassin from “Kill Bill Vol. 1,” best villain, while Seann William Scott’s embarrassingly goofy moves in “American Wedding” earned him the dancing sequence prize.

The fight trophy went to “Kill Bill Vol. 1.”

Lindsay Lohan took home the breakthrough female honor for “Freaky Friday,” while Shawn Ashmore, who played Bobby Drake/Iceman in “X2: X-Men United,” was named breakthrough male.

The program, which was taped for broadcast on Thursday, also featured comedy clips, and even “The Passion of the Christ” didn’t get away without some ribbing.

The MTV Movie Awards is known for irreverent prizes. For instance, the kiss trophy went to Amy Smart and Carmen Electra for their three-way makeout with Owen Wilson in “Starsky & Hutch.” Electra accepted the award alone.
