On the heels of its Oscar bump, “Juno” has eclipsed the coveted $100 million mark in box office earnings. What is also impressive is the film’s soundtrack hit the top of the pop charts.
Normally films nominated for Oscars get a boost at the box office, “Juno” and its $100 million earnings aside, the true impressive aspect of the little film that could story is how the Billboard charts are now also showing “Juno” some love.
The album, which has been out for seven weeks, has set the standard for slow climbs to the top of the pops. Although selling 65,000 copies does not sound all that much, it proved enough to send the “Juno” soundtrack to number one.
“Juno” has four Oscar nominations including Best Director and Best Actress, Ellen Page.
