Tv - Veronica Mars Wins Top Prize At Mtvu Fandom Awards

Cult Tv series Veronica Mars was given the top prize at the inaugural mtvU Fandom Awards on Thursday (24Jul14).

The teen detective drama was given new life last year (13) after fans donated $5.7 million (£3.5 million) via a Kickstarter.com campaign to reunite the cast for a feature film, seven years after the show was abruptly cancelled.

The Veronica Mars movie was released in March (14), and fans of the series have continued supporting the franchise by voting for the show in the first-ever mtvU prizegiving, beating out 31 nominees, including The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad for Fandom of the Year.

Also taking home trophies were Game of Thrones for OMG Moment of the Year for the Purple Wedding episode, Harry Potter for Best Fandom Forever, Tv series Hannibal for Breakout Fandom of the Year, and The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev for Ship of the Year (Favourite onscreen relationship).

Special prizes also went to Teen Wolf for Fandom Feat of the Year, as the programme's fans raised funds to build a wolf sanctuary, and The Fault in Our Stars author John Green for the Visionary Award.

The ceremony was held at the Petco Park baseball stadium on 24 July (14) as part of the annual Comic-Con festival in San Diego, California, and broadcast in the U.S. on Sunday (27Jul14).
