Kristen Bell's upcoming "Veronica Mars" movie received Variety's Breakthrough of the Year Award Movie Award Jan. 9 at CES in Las Vegas. Of the Kickstarter campaign to fund the movie, Bell said: "I can understand how people question celebrities using the platform, but clarity comes when you understand it's not the celebrity asking for money - it's the project. I'm not a little guy, but my project, 'Veronica Mars,' is a little guy. There is no possible way this film would have been made without crowdfunding. Trust me, we spent seven years trying."
Vine's Colin Kroll and Rus Yusupov received Variety's Breakthrough in Technology award. Of Vine's six second videos, Kroll said: "We tried five (seconds), and that felt too short, and then 10, and that felt way too long. With six, it feels right when you're watching it and it doesn't feel like too much of a burden when you're shooting it."
