ANSWER: Helen Hunt won the Emmy for "Mad About You" and the Oscar (and Golden Globe) for "As Good As It Gets" in 1998.

Side note: Director Bob Fosse is the only person to win an Emmy, Oscar and Tony in the same year (1973) for, respectively, "Liza with a 'Z,'" "Cabaret" and "Pippin." However, since he wasn't a star, his name doesn't qualify as a correct answer to this Gold Derby trivia question.
