After a much heated fan-voting battle between FX's 'Sons of Anarchy' and NBC's 'Hannibal' during ScreenCrush's Fan Choice Awards, the horror-drama has emerged victorious in the race for Best TV Drama of 2013.

While such acclaimed series as HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' FX's 'American Horror Story' and AMC's 'Breaking Bad' all put up a good fight, TV fans voted 'Hannibal' Best TV Drama with a massive surge that placed it far ahead of the competition.

The nominees for the 2nd Annual Fan Choice Awards were curated by ScreenCrush's trusty editors, and the winners were chosen by movie and TV fans in a lengthy voting period that began on January 6 and finished February 11. Fans were allowed to vote up to once per hour per category.

Based on the acclaimed films and the popular Thomas Harris books, NBC's 'Hannibal' features Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, a troubled criminal profiler who enlists the help of Mads Mikkelsen's Dr. Hannibal Lecter to track down some of the most sadistic serial killers. The series will return for a second season on February 28.
