For the usual awards, I think that this isn't doable. A majority of voters would only know one or two choices per category if at all probably, I don't think that it would be good.
If this could result in a special event in the future, it would need different rules to follow. Like making a brief introduction into the manga for every nomination mandatory, as well as more time before the voting begins to give people the possibility to peek at some of the nominees, as probably many unknown manga would be part of that.
This is pure personal speculation though, thanks for the input.
I unfortunately didn't even know of the existence of manga/anime back in the 80's and 90's at that time (cries! I now can't live without manga/anime, hehe. thank you school friends chatting about DBZ in class in ~ year 2000'ish, yep that was my introduction to the wonderful world of anime/manga!!!), and haven't read/watched any or nearly any from back then (I think the oldest animes I've watched were DB and Hellsing but I'm too lazy to look up their dates and other animes' dates), but I agree with you never the less. because...
in the U.S., the 80's and 90's WERE the *GOLDEN YEARS* (*Golden Years*) of movies, tv shows (yes, actual series with good stories/plots too except their budgets ran out and weren't completed, ARGH!, lol), and electronic games! Absolute Classics that remain better then almost much stuff nowadays! The U.S. actually made stuff with actual quality stories, back then, unlike most stuff nowaways.
(if you agree and know about 80's+90's U.S. stuff and are interested, I'd love to chat with you about it as I have lots of stuff to mention/talk about hehe. we could compared our favorites )
and from reading your post it seems the same was true in Japan as well with their manga/anime.

Best Villain- Orochimaru(Naruto)
Everything about him is evil and creepy. The words he uses, the way his tongue comes out, his crazy eyes and of course the snakes
Best Plot twist- Itachi(Naruto) is really a good guy.
i was shocked when it happen. He went from a Badass Villain to a guy who dedicated his life to Konoha and his little brother
Late nominations are late.
I'm sorry, but I'm confused. >.<
