Poll: Best Oscar Nominated Actor-Producer Combo?

As of 2021, only eight people and thirteen movies have "officially" secured a rare dual acting and producing Oscar nominations for the same film. Prior to 1950, Best Picture nominees were in the production company's name and not in the name of any credited producers. Unofficially, Orson Welles's Citizen Kane, Charles Chaplin's The Great Dictator and Laurence Olivier's Hamlet would add three more, bringing the total to eleven people and sixteen movies.

Which same person Oscar nominated actor-producer has the best same film combined results, both in terms of their character portrayal and resulting movie?
