That seems open to cheating to me. Some webcartoonists have their name clearly displayed on their website, so some random could easily come along and say "I'm Tim Buckley, honest, and here are my votes, they're all for Rubbishy Pencil-drawn-on-lined-paper Comic by Fred Fredson who is awesome and wonderful and incredible and the comic is awesome," and we'd have no way to prove that he's not Tim Buckley (for example; I just picked a name a lot of people would be familiar with).

I like 3-2-1 and top 3 (probably in that order.)
I actually find that *easier* as a voter than just picking one.
I'm willing to count votes and/or verify site address references or whatever.

Yes, registration on a site would discourage a lot of potential voters, so the email system would probably work better. As long as we have a system to verify that they're eligible to nominate and vote - a link to their site in the email, and the email they're sending from clearly visible somewhere on the site, for example - I think it'd work perfectly fine. Just make sure the nomination and voting rules are clear and easy to find on the award site.
And as I have said before, I'm happy to help count votes and nominations and verify voters.

I'm in favour of the 3-2-1 system. If handled correctly, i don't see it being any more of an organisational problem than the one man one vote system. I'll even volunteer to count votes.

If this were a fun contest, I'd go with the 3-2-1 system which levels the field and works against runaway bandwagon favorites.
But I get the impression this is a serious contest, so one vote per person per category or similar might be the way to go. Simpler to add up, too.
