Shaquille O'Neal and Steph Curry have a long list of accomplishments in their careers, and can now add Academy Award winners to their resume. The pair of NBA stars took home an Oscar for their work as Executive Producers on the documentary "Queen of Basketball."

The film is about the story of Lusia Harris, who is the only woman to ever be drafted by an NBA team. Back in 1977 the New Orleans Jazz selected Harris, but she didn't try out for the team due to the fact that she was pregnant at the time.

Shaquille O'Neal quickly became attached to the film and wanted to do whatever he could to make sure it was seen by the masses. Now, it is an Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Short Subject.
