Four Oscar nominations last week helped propel the "Juno" soundtrack into the top spot on the album charts.

The disc -- which features music from Sonic Youth, the Kinks and Belle & Sebastian -- rose up from No. 2 to No. 1 on sales of over 5,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

It marks the first film soundtrack to hit No. 1 since "Curious George" in October of 2006.

"Juno" also grabbed the No. 1 spot south of the border, selling 65,000 copies in the U.S.

Back in Canada, Radiohead's "In Rainbows" (5,000) dropped down to No. 2 after spending three weeks perched at the top, while Cat Power's latest effort "Jukebox" had the best debut of the week, coming in at No. 3.

"MuchDance 2008" slipped from No. 3 to No. 4, Michael Buble's "Call Me Irresponsible" came up three to No. 5, and Anne Murray's "Duets, Friends & Legends" held on to No. 6.

Rounding out the top 10 was Alicia Keys' "As I Am" at No. 7, Garth Brooks' "Ultimate Hits" at No. 8, Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" at No. 9, and Stephan Moccio's "Exposure" at No. 10.

Other notable first-week entries included Natasha Bedingfield's "Pocketful of Sunshine" at No. 13, Matt Costa's "Unfamiliar Faces" at No. 22, and the "From the Heart" compilation at No. 25.

In the U.S., Alicia Keys claimed the second spot, followed by Natasha Bedingfield in third, Mary J. Blige's "Growing Pains" in fourth, and Radiohead in fifth.
