Hollywood star Uma Thurman has blasted Kill Bill's chances of winning any OSCARS next year (04), insisting that it's far too violent.

The Quentin Tarantino film, which has been split into two for a staggered cinematic release, has been the subject of much Academy Awards gossip - because Oscar rules state each episode must be nominated individually.

But Uma - who picked up an Oscar nod for her role in Tarantino's 1994 film PULP FICTION - is convinced the martial arts saga has no hope of winning any awards next March (04).

She says, "It will be highly unlikely that happens again this time.

"The story is split and it's so violent I don't think the Academy will like it. It doesn't pander to the Oscar community."
