ET has learned that contingency plans are in the works in case precipitation hits the red carpet outside of the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday. Tents will be on deck to preserve the $10,000 dresses that will be worn to the event.

Soria added that party crashers "shouldn't even think about" sneaking into the awards show.
