Poll: Oscar's Best Writer-Director-Producer Triple Threat

Since 1951, thirty-two individuals across thirty-eight films "officially" secured a trio of same person Oscar nominations in the writing, directing and producing categories for the same film. Prior to 1951, the Academy only awarded Oscar Best Picture nominations in the name of studio, rather than in the name of the producer(s).

Which person nominated in the writing, director and producer Oscar categories for the same film best combined their script writing, directorial and project management skills for the greatest effect? (* answer pool limited to films rated 7.4+ as of 15 April 2021)
