Henson will face off for lead actress drama honors against Outlander's Caitriona Balfe, Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder), Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) and Robin Wright (House of Cards). The defending champ in both categories, The Affair and its star Ruth Wilson, were snubbed.

Mr. Robot's Rami Malek went 2-for-2 after scoring a SAG nod Wednesday, making it into the drama lead actor race against Jon Hamm (Mad Men),Wagner Moura (Narcos), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan).
