The title song "Skyfall" was the first James Bond theme to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song, and was the first to earn an Oscar nomination since the song for 1981's "For Your Eyes Only". See more...

Factual error: During Bond's fight with Patrice in the Shanghai high-rise, Patrice's sniper rifle fires several times, presumably by accident. However, moments earlier, when Patrice assassinates his target in the neighboring building, the rifle is shown to be bolt-action. A bolt-action rifle can't be fired more than once without manually loading the next round.
Factual error: The glass on the windows on skyscrapers like the one in the skyscraper/assassin scene is specially made for high altitude building and is usually very thick (4-6 cm thick, as seen by the section the sniper removes), this means that during the subsequent fight scene it would have been impossible to break that window just by bumping into it.
Factual error: In Turkey the first two numbers of a vehicle licence plate belongs to a city. 34 for Istanbul for example. The motorcycle chase in the beginning of the movie takes part in Istanbul, (The Land Rover and the Audi has 34 plates) however once they come to the bridge where Bond jumps to the train, all the vehicles on the bridge (except the Land Rover) has plates that start with 01, which is the licence plate number for the city Adana, where those scenes were shot.
Factual error: When Bond climbs up from under lift/elevator after hanging under the assassin's lift car he opens adjacent lift/elevator landing doors just by pulling them apart. This is not possible without first disengaging the door lock mechanism, which is operated when car is at that level. If this were possible anyone could push lift/elevator doors open from any level and fall down the shaft.
Continuity: Just after Bond has lost track of Silva in the London Underground station, the scene cuts to M's parliament meeting. At this time, the time on M's watch reads 3:00. Yet when Bond catches up with Silva in the basement of the London Underground station, the time on Bond's watch reads 4:55. Far too long to have passed given the events seen and distances travelled.
Factual error: When Bond is chasing Silva through the London Underground system they both supposedly get on a train at Temple Station on the District Line. The train is in fact a Jubilee Line train, but with District Line route maps on the inside. The back said Elephant & Castle and the front said Wimbledon.
Factual error: In the car scene just before the MI6 explosion, invalid IPv4 addresses (with digits larger than 255) are displayed on the laptop screen. [This gets debated, with comparisons made to 555 phone numbers. 555 may not be a real area code, but there's nothing technically preventing it being one. IP addresses, however, just can't have numbers larger than 255 - it's like a phone number having a % symbol in it.]
