LOS ANGELES (AP) - Groundbreaking Internet series and movie actors could be the headliners in the Emmy Awards contest.

Two Netflix shows, "House of Cards" and "Arrested Development," may become the first online programs to compete for major series and acting bids.

And a number of big-screen stars are expected to claim Emmy nominations, including Michael Douglas and Matt Damon for the Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra."

The Emmy nominations will be announced early Thursday in Los Angeles.

Neil Patrick Harris is the host of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Emmy ceremony airing Sept. 22 on CBS.
