Daniel Craig will reprise the role of James Bond and will be directed once more by Sam Mendes for the new 007 film.
The yet-untitled film, the 24th in the franchise, will be released in the UK in October 2015, and the month after in the US.
Before the nominations are even announced William Hill has put odds of 66/1 on the latest Bond film to win the Best Picture Award for the first time in its 50 year history.
Spokesman Rupert Adams said, “Bond is the longest running movie franchise in history and Skyfall the most successful in that 23 film series, you have to think it has a chance of delivering the big one."
But despite optimism about Skyfall's chances it is still trailing Stephen Spielberg's Lincoln - 10/11, Les Miserables - 9/4 , and Life of Pi - 20/1. The British spy lags with odds of 66/1.
James Bond hit Skyfall has become the highest grossing film ever at the UK box office.
In just 40 days it has taken £94.28 million to surpass the previous record-holder Avatar.
James Cameron's Avatar took £94.03 million over an 11-month period following its release in late 2009.
