I feel as though your choice to include popular vote into the awards turned them into a joke. The popular opinion of an anime is available freely online and I'm sure the judged would be able to take that into account. There's no need to involve such a wild card as popular vote in the outcome of the awards.

Next awards, I think it'd be best if they were entirely judge decided.

They did later announce the judge's picks for each category: /anime-news/2018/03/01/revealing-the-judges-picks-for-the-anime-awards

I feel like a fair compromise would be to have some categories that are more technical, like Best Animation, being restricted to judge's picks without collecting a popular vote.
