An ice hockey hat trick occurs when a player scores three goals in a single game. It is celebrated with fans throwing hats onto the ice from the stands.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, hat tricks in other fields are likewise "three successes of the same kind, especially consecutive ones within a limited period". Hat tricks from other fields can be found in competitions, as varied as, Cricket, Marbles, Darts and Scrabble. The Oscar hat trick is similarly a rare and extraordinary feat, when an individual is thrice recognized for a single film by Academy voters.

In honor of the 2019 National Hockey League Stanley Cup and 2019 NCAA Collegiate Men's and Women's Frozen Four, a tribute to one of the rarest and most difficult hat tricks to achieve, the Oscar nomination hat trick.

Only two people, Warren Beatty and Bradley Cooper have "officially" achieved a rare Oscars triple by securing acting, writing and producing nominations for the same film. Amazingly, Beatty did it twice repeating the feat within three years. Prior to 1950, two others, Charles Chaplin and Orson Welles "unofficially" secured the same triple, but at that time Best Picture nominees were in the production company's name and not in the name of the credited producers.

Which same person Oscar nominated actor-writer-producer has the best same film total package in combined results for character portrayal, script writing and overall movie?
