Underdog 'Argo' continues on charmed Oscar pathLOS ANGELES (AP) _ Some years, Academy Awards voters just want to feel right about themselves, their industry, their country. And maybe honor one of their own who hasn't always shared in the love of his peers.

Tommy Mottola apologizes to Mariah in 'Hitmaker'NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Behind Mariah, Michael and the constellation of stars at arguably the most successful record label in history stood a man who didn't often talk to the media or explain his motivations.

He explains the label's behind-the-scenes support for Michael Jackson as the singer's life and career took one strange turn after another. And he traces the arc of the music business as it evolved over the course of his lifetime _ from Elvis to the iPod.
