Tarantino's Fears for Oscar Chances
Source: IMDB

Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino fears he has ruined Uma Thurman's chances of landing an Oscar nomination because he split his Kill Bill story into two films. The stunning actress plays The Bride who seeks vengeance for the murder of her wedding party in last year's Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and this year's Kill Bill: Vol. 2. Tarantino split the movie in two after failing to cut it to an acceptable length - but he now fears the decision could backfire, come the Academy Awards. He explains, "If I tried to turn it into a three-hour or two-and-a-half-hour movie, all the scenes that would go would be scenes I think give the movie its weight, its resonance. If I truly, truly believed the film would have had more impact shorter, I would have done it that way. I think the only thing that might have been lost in that decision is we could have gotten considerably more awards play if the film had been one big, giant epic. As one big movie, Uma would have gotten a best-actress nomination, for sure. I'm still hoping we're going to do good at the Oscars in 2005."
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol

He's still hoping to do good at the Oscars? Though I love the film thoroughly, I dont think it'll be up for JACK-SHIT. If it gets a single nom (let alone a few) I'll be shocked.

i agree.  this wont be up for shit.  even if it WAS good enough, (which it wasnt), and even if it WAS the type of movie the academy awards (which it CERTAINLY ISNT), their memories arent that long typically and this wasnt some monster-Passion sized hit to make them remember.

I hope Carradine gets a nomination, more than uma.

I could see a sound or editing nom, but no acting noms. Uma did great, but he's right, breaking up the movie did torpedo her chances.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

splitting the movies up really did fuck up its chances of getting ANYTHING...vol 2 was much too hyped up for its own good....i like it but you know

Tarantino doesn't strike me as a man who is after awards more than he's after the feeling of making a great film.

Then again, he's probably pretty arrogant, so he'd want awards he didn't even apply for.

I seriously don't think Tarantino needs encouraging.

Does anybody else think that the girl is going to be a fantastic actress. That bit when she is eating her sandwich and flapping her hand at the same time, it's so cool and you can't really teach that stuff, she looks so natural in the film.

one of my favourite lines: "why, daddy? were you being a baaaaaaaaaaad daddy?"

please. that little girl tops Aliens and Lost World in terms of "little girls that did nothing for the movie".

the more i think about kibble, the more its "coolness" falls away to reveal nothing but Lame. of all the tarantino movies, this is the first that is nowhere near as cool as it thinks it is.

yes, i caught a few bits of it last night while my sister had it on and some of it really just annoyed me.
