The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, watch Star Wars saga cast member Mark Hamill receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Plus, find out why the Academy Awards often honor those actors who partake in method acting, and watch a stop-motion LEGO recreation of the action-packed Pacific Rim: Uprising trailer.

Mark Hamill finally received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. George Lucas and Harrison Ford were in attendance for the ceremony, along with Hamill’s family. You can watch the entire ceremony from Los Angeles this morning in the Mark Hamill Walk of Fame presentation video above.

Vox takes a look at the art and history of method acting and how the Academy Awards have frequently favored actors who have some level of training with the process. Actors like Daniel Day-Lewis, Heath Ledger and Leonardo DiCaprio got their Oscars for method performances, and this video dives into why they might be a little more appealing than the average performance.

If you’re excited about the forthcoming release of Pacific Rim: Uprising later this month, then you might like this stop-motion animation recreation of the sequel’s trailer with LEGO pieces.
