Bob Fosse in 1973, winning the Best Director Oscar for Cabaret, two Tonys for Pippin (for Direction of a Musical and Choreography), and three Emmys for Liza with a Z (for Directorial Achievement in Comedy, Variety or Music; Choreography; and Outstanding Single Program - Variety and Popular Music, the latter shared with Fred Ebb and Liza Minnelli).

Fosse was most renowned for his Broadway work, winning 7 additional Tony Awards, but he was nominated for three more Oscars after his Cabaret win, for Best Director for Lenny (1974) and Best Director and Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen for All That Jazz (1979). He received his three Emmys on his only nominations.

Jason Robarbs was nominated for all three in 1978; for Julia, A Touch of the Poet
and Washington: Behind Closed Doors. He took home the Oscar.

Paul Newman repeated the accomplishment in 2003; receiving an Oscar
nomination for The Road to Perdition and a Tony and Emmy nomination
for his turn as the Stage Manager in Our Town.

Alan Alda pulled a hat trick in 2005, receiving an Oscar nomination for The Aviator,
an Emmy nod for his supporting role in West Wing, and a Tony nomination for his
performance in the acclaimed Broadway revival of Glengarry Glen Ross.
