Best Flack - 2008
We know Dana Mattice is supported by the entire Museum of Fine Arts, Houston public relations staff, but we hear her cheerful voice the most. She's always on top of whatever request we can think of — answering dumb questions (which she assures us are never dumb), sending photos, interviews and press releases, or resending one of those because they got, err, lost in our inbox. Entertainment publicity types are always ready to tell you how you can help them, but can prove difficult when it comes to helping you meet deadlines. Not Mattice (or her MFAH co-workers); she's saved us many a pulled hair and proved to be an invaluable tool to our entertainment pages.
