I have an early sneaking suspicion that Skyfall wins best cinematography. I've heard nothing but great things about the film, and everybody seems to be pointing out how wonderfully it's shot. On top of that, it's DP was Roger Deakins, one of the most respected working cinematographers today, and it's worth noting that he's been nominated for 7 Oscars without winning one.
I could see it like last year, where I thought for the longest time The Tree of Life was going to take home the prize, but in swoops Robert Richardson with the win for Hugo. I think the early favorite is the grandeur of The Master, but I could see a sleek Skyfall coming in ahead.
