    Is there a screenwriter/playwright that has won an Oscar, Primetime Emmy, and Oscar for writing?

    If not, who do you think has potential of accomplishing this?

    I did not know Mel Brooks, the legend has it. Holy s***. Thanks guys.

    I feel like Lin Manuel-Miranda will get it some day.

    Looking at the numbers, this seems like such a nearly impossible thing to achieve.
