A graphic horror anthology series defeated the History Channel miniseries “The Bible” at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards.

For the category of “Favorite TV Movie/Miniseries,” the FX channel’s “American Horror Story” won, beating out “The Bible,” HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra,” the Syfy movie “Sharknado,” and Starz’s “The White Queen.”

While the two-hour televised award ceremony on Wednesday evening did not feature a segment announcing the category, all results were posted on the People’s Choice’s website.

In an interview with The Christian Post after the results were announced, Focus on the Family President Jim Daly stated that the loss was not significant compared to the overall influence of the miniseries.

“The results of a subjective poll will never negate the fact that the real win for ‘The Bible’ are in the lives changed. It’s not about another trophy that will simply sit among many on a shelf and collect dust,” said Daly, who had called on viewers to rally and vote for the miniseries when its nomination was announced.
