U.S. shows up for BAFTA

While so many Americans are embracing all things British thanks to the royal wedding, our friends across the pond are returning the favor.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this year's British Academy Television awards includes nominations for "Boardwalk Empire," "Glee," and "Mad Men."

The three series are up for the International Award, along with the Danish drama "The Killing." AMC recently launched a U.S. version of the latter show.

The awards show will be held held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on May 22.
