First, think of how hard it would be to secure a single Oscar nomination by itself. Then, think how difficult it would be to secure three nominations in three different categories that need completely different skill sets. Finally, if you have been able to carry out both those herculean tasks; then how seemingly impossible it would be to do all these feats at the same time in a single movie. These individuals and their movies are definitely worth watching to appreciate the triumphant result of these Oscar-nominated "hat tricks".

1st Most Difficult Hat Trick:
Triple Oscar Nominee Actor-Writer-Director Hat Tricks

'Good idea. My vote from #1: Woody Allen. Warren Beatty for 'Reds' for the others.

I think it may be a good idea to cite your source for the quote. 'Better to play if safe.

REVISED INTRODUCTION
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.

Hi Urb, It's entirely possible that I'm just so tired that I'm not seeing something correctly but I'm confused about this one: (The seemingly contradictory information is in bold.)

Triple Oscar Actor-Director-Producer Hat Tricks

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

(Options: Eastwood, Beatty, and Welles, but no Costner.)

For #1, actor-writer-director nominees, I believe Orson Welles and Warren Beatty also qualify.

Thanks, I am in the process of re-checking them all now, as I compiled these lists from scratch from the Academy Awards of Merit categories nominations. Those two individuals received four nominations each actor-writer-director-producer in three films. Each of these instances should be listed on every one of these lists. I missed transferring them from the other lists. Thanks for catching the oversight.


Warren Beatty Heaven Can Wait Warren Beatty's Heaven Can Wait

Orson Welles Citizen Kane Orson Wells' Citizen Kane

Thanks, added 2019 triple nominee

Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born Bardley Cooper's A Star Is Born

He came close on a director's nomination too. Although, I was happy with the five that got the nods in 2019. FYI, other doubles and triple close calls (aka snubs) Oscars: 8 Double Nominees for Best Actor and Best Director

A fair comparison might be to the more difficult variation, "the Gordie Howe hat trick, wherein a player scores a goal, records an assist and gets in a fight all in one game. It is named after Hall of Famer Gordie Howe, who is known as "Mr. Hockey", because he is considered the most well rounded hockey player of all time. Howe could both set up and score goals, but also do everything well from killing penalties, back checking, and even fighting, when necessary."  Likewise, these triple Oscar nominations require a well-rounded individual to use different filmmaker skill sets and execute them flawlessly in a single project.

Hi Urb, May I suggest one small edit to the Actor-Writer-Director poll? ('in bold below)

Only four people, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Roberto Benigniand Warren Beatty, in five films have achieved a rare Oscars triple by securing acting, writing and directing nominations for the same film.

'Just added a comma after Beatty: without it, it's Beatty in five films, not all four directors combined.
