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.

Only three people, Warren Beatty, Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood, in five movies have "officially" achieved a rare Oscars triple by securing acting, directing and producing nominations for the same film. Prior to 1950, only two other people, Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier in a single film "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-director-producer has the best same film total package in combined results for character portrayal, direction and overall movie?
