The network announced Friday that while the horror drama from Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuk can compete in the drama category, it will vie for the gold in the category that is typically populated by miniseries from the likes of HBO. Because AHS is an anthology — meaning, it was designed to change casts and stories every season — it qualifies as a miniseries in the eyes of the TV Academy.

Last September, the critically-beloved PBS drama Downton Abbey swept the Emmys and also dominated in the best miniseries category. This coming fall, however, it will have to compete against the likes of Mad Men and Breaking Bad in the drama race.
