The BAFTA Television Awards nominees have finally been announced!

The Arqiva British Academy Television Awards for 2012 will be airing on May 27th.

While many of the programs may seem unfamiliar — mainly because we don't get them in the United States — some should still ring a bell.

We were glad to see Maggie Smith nominated for Supporting Actress for her role in Downtown Abbey. Props to Harry Potter alum getting some love!

It was also funny when we stumbled across Modern Family under the Foreign category! We forget it'd be foreign to anyone not in America. LOLz!
