We always get excited during award show season, but this year’s crop of red carpet walkers — which includes Lupita Nyong’o, Sandra Bullock, and Cate Blanchett — has been among the most gratifying we’ve seen in ages. From Jennifer Lawrence‘s fascinating collaboration with Dior to Nyong’o’s Ralph Lauren risk, we can’t stop talking about what we’ve seen so far. And it’s all leading up to the biggest fashion night of the year, the Academy Awards!

To help celebrate the season (because after all, this is our Super Bowl), InStyle is hosting our first-ever Google+ Hangout to discuss the dresses and details of Hollywood’s biggest night. What will they wear? What should they wear? Join InStyle‘s editor Ariel Foxman along with Fashion News Director Eric Wilson and three very sharp and savvy fashion leaders, designer Rachel Roy, and Beth Buccini and Sarah Easley of N.Y.C. Soho boutique Kirna Zabete, for our #OscarsDressDebate, live Jan. 28 at 1 p.m. EST. Simply log on to the event at that date and time to hear our style experts discuss what they hope to see. Can’t join us live? Look for the replay immediately following the broadcast, and get your questions in now by visiting the event page. (And be sure to follow InStyle on Google+ while you’re at it!)

Join in the debate by asking a question, or share an opinion using #OscarsDressDebate in social media. And don’t forget to freshen up your fashion memory files by reviewing all the red carpet looks from the recent Golden Globes and SAG awards.
